Jerwood Staging Series is a curatorial project designed to provide a London platform for event-based presentations of work, including film screenings, performances, readings and discussion and was launched in 2016. It is led by Sarah Williams, Head of Programme, Jerwood Visual Arts and Lauren Houlton, Gallery Manager, Jerwood Visual Arts.

Adelaide Bannerman and Jessica Taylor of the International Curators Forum have curated an evening of performances and screenings by two artists, Adam Patterson and Rubiane Maia, who consider expanded ways of seeing and speaking beyond the historicised or everyday through performance.

Morgan Quaintance presents his new documentary, Letter From Tokyo, alongside ephemera collected during the filming of the work and live arrangements of the work’s soundtrack by Millips.

Beth Emily Richards presents Poor Copy, a body of work comprising new moving-image and performance investigating historical narratives and archival fragments of Michael Jackson’s visits to Devon, UK, during the early 2000’s.

Sophie Hoyle presents a new performance comprising biofeedback controlled videos and a live set made in collaboration with musician Swan Meat (Reba Fay). This is accompanied by a screening of moving-image works by artists exploring chronic illness, selected by Sophie Hoyle.

Chris Fite-Wassilak has curated an afternoon of readings bringing together speakers from science, science fiction and sociology to consider what forms of communications or communion might exist in the near future.
