Ed Atkins, Emma Hart, Naheed Raza and Corin Sworn were picked from a 50-strong shortlist of early to mid-career artists specialising in the moving-image as the first recipients of The Jerwood/Film and Video Umbrella Awards.
The pieces on display have deliberately not been conceived as finished articles but demonstrations of potential and declarations of intent.
During the exhibition run, two of the featured artists will each be awarded a £20,000 commission to continue and complete their projects.
The finished works will then premiere at Jerwood Space in early 2013 before travelling to CCA (Centre for Contemporary Art) in Glasgow.
