United Visual Artists (UVA) are an art and design practice based in London and working internationally. UVA create work at the intersection of sculpture, architecture, live performance and digital installation.
UVA’s initial work in live performance led to a sustained interest in spectacle, the relationship between passive spectation and active participation, and the use of responsive systems to create a sense of presence. As UVA’s work has broadened and evolved towards large-scale permanent works, it has become more influenced by complex systems found in nature, while retaining its desire to emotionally engage the viewer and create a sense of communion.
UVA’s team members come from many disciplines. This cross-pollination of skills inspires new fields of exploration, which is core to their ethos. This approach to collaboration has resulted in a portfolio of commissions and exhibitions in the UK and further afield.
UVA’s work has been exhibited at institutions including the V&A, the Royal Academy of Art, the South Bank Centre, the Wellcome Collection, Opera North Leeds, Durham Cathedral and The British Library. Their works have toured to cities including Paris, New York, Los Angeles, Tokyo, Hong Kong, Melbourne and Barcelona. UVA also have public art works on permanent display in London, Bristol, Toronto and Istanbul.
