United Visual Artists

United Visual Artists

United Visual Artists is a London based art practice founded in 2003 by Matthew Clark, Chris Bird and Ash Nehru. UVA’s work encompasses large-scale temporary and permanent installations, small-scale artworks and live performance based projects.

The studio’s lines of enquiry include the tension between real and synthesised experiences; the questioning of our relationship with technology, and our perceptual experiences of natural phenomena such as space and time.

UVA have been commissioned by institutions including Victoria & Albert Museum, Royal Academy of Arts, Barbican, The Serpentine Gallery, Manchester International Festival, MONA and YCAM Japan. Their work has been exhibited at galleries including The Royal Academy, The Wellcome Collection, Blain | Southern, Riflemaker and the British Library.

The studio has an open approach to collaboration, which has led to a diverse range of projects including with choreographer Benjamin Millepied and the Paris Opéra Ballet, filmmaker Adam Curtis and musicians Massive Attack, Battles and James Blake.
