DESCRIPTION

Jerwood Visual Arts (JVA) is a contemporary gallery programme of awards, exhibitions and events at Jerwood Space, London and on tour nationally. Jerwood Visual Arts showcases and supports the work of talented emerging artists across the disciplines of drawing, painting, sculpture, applied arts, photography and moving image. It also aims to make connections and provoke conversations within and across visual arts disciplines. JVA is a major initiative of the Jerwood Charitable Foundation.

JVA launched at the Frieze Art Fair in 2006 and brought together for the first time the Jerwood Charitable Foundation’s numerous visual arts projects. Today JVA makes up a third of the Charitable Foundation’s activity and revenue.

The current exhibition programme is comprised of our annual touring exhibitions Jerwood Drawing Prize, Jerwood Painting Fellowships and Jerwood Makers Open, all of which are open submission, Jerwood Encounters, our series of one-off, curated exhibitions that do not currently tour and the Jerwood/ Film and Video Umbrella Awards, a nominated commissioning programme for moving image artists. For more information visit our Current Exhibitions pages.

A series of Talks & Events by artists, curators, writers and educationalists accompany exhibitions at Jerwood Space and on tour. We also host a writer in residence on the JVA Blog who critically and creatively responds to the exhibitions at Jerwood Space. Debate and discussion is encouraged so please log on to have your say.

Previous JVA exhibitions include the renowned Jerwood Painting Prize, Jerwood Applied Arts Prize and the Jerwood Moving Image Awards. More recent exhibitions include Jerwood Contemporary Makers and Jerwood Contemporary Painters both of which ended in 2010. For information on all our previous exhibitions visit our Archive pages.
