Established in 1999, Visions in the Nunnery is a renowned showcase of moving image, digital and performance art, selected from an international open call.
The show offers an informed overview of the provocative and quick-changing mediums of moving image and performance, with works selected from across the world. Over the years Visions has exhibited artists including Oreet Ashery, Tacita Dean, Ori Gersht, Dryden Goodwin, Susan Hiller, Mikhail Karikis, Tina Keane, Lawrence Lek, Uriel Orlow and Heather Phillipson, many at the very early stages of their careers.
Now a biennial staple of the Nunnery Gallery programme, the next Visions will be the 12th edition, showing in the winter of 2020. Drawing on its rich history, Visions now invites three established artists to lead programmes for each exhibition, setting the tone and themes for the open call. The 2020 lead artists will be announced shortly.
Visions in the Nunnery is curated by artist and selector Tessa Garland with Sophie Hill, Director of Arts + Events at Bow Arts. We would like to acknowledge previous Visions supporters Bristol Experimental Expanded Film (BEEF), Film and Video Umbrella (FVU), LUX, Jane England Gallery and Queen Mary University of London.
