United Visual Artists (UVA) is a London-based art practice founded in 2003. UVA’s broad body of work encompasses wall-based artwork, sculpture and large-scale, site-specific installation.
The studio realise their work collaboratively under the direction of co-founder Matt Clark (b.1974). Each work is recognised as a composite, extending the principles of interconnectedness not only throughout UVAs conceptual inspiration but also within their process. In exposing their cross pollinated methodology, UVA strive to deconstruct the notion of liberated creation, asking where the point of authorship begins and then departs.
UVA examine our relationship with technology and the integrity of knowledge; creating artwork which often transcends the purely physical and questions the relativity of our experience.
UVA have been commissioned by worldwide institutions including the Barbican Curve gallery, Victoria & Albert Museum, Serpentine Galleries, The Wellcome Trust, Manchester International Festival, YCAM Japan and works acquired into the collections of Fondation Cartier France and MONA Australia. Their work has been included in exhibitions with Blain|Southern and Riflemaker in the UK, as well as Bryce Wolkowitz in the US. Permanent works are sited internationally across Toronto, Dubai, Philadelphia and London
