An Initiative for Art and Research


Uriel Orlow is an artist and Senior Research Fellow at the University of Westminster, London.

He is known for modular, multimedia installations that focus on the micro-histories of specific locations and problematize image and narrative regimes. Orlow’s work is concerned with spatial manifestations of memory and the “blind spots” of representation. In 2012, he received the Swiss Art Award at Art Basel.
