As part of Printworks’ reopening season, Broadwick Live commissioned United Visual Artists to develop a new creative concept and visual narrative, as well as producing a number of bespoke takeovers throughout the season.
Our partners at Fact Mag have created and filmed a short documentary to bring this unique collaboration to life.
With special thanks to British Land and dbnAudile.

In redesigning the lighting and visual production for Printworks, UVA has continued this creative approach and draws on the venue’s striking architecture as well as its former use as a printing factory, connecting its history to today’s technological information streams. It continues UVA’s exploration of information technologies to articulate expressive and organic behaviours that suggest intelligent, living spaces. Printworks, located in Canada Water, housed the huge printing presses once used for papers including the Evening Standard.
UVA is known for its installation artworks and a long track record of collaborations with musicians and live performers including the creative direction for contemporary ballet and dance stage sets, and working with musicians such as Massive Attack and James Blake. The practice has enjoyed a lifetime of traversing high culture and sub culture, realising projects everywhere from the Paris Opéra Ballet to Coachella and Burberry’s fashion runway show. They have been commissioned by institutions including Barbican, Manchester International Festival and the V&A.
