VisionMix operates as a curatorial collective, led by Lucia King (UK) and Rashmi Sawhney (UAE).


Lucia King is a London-based Artist and Filmmaker who has shown her work extensively nationally and internationally. She is also a Senior Lecturer in Fine Art and Moving Image at the University of Brighton. Drawing from her background as a doctoral researcher on artists film and documentary filmmakers’ practices in India (post 1990’s), her interest also lies in how artworks and films alter their significance and reading as they travel from one world region to another, and across varying exhibition and distribution platforms. Her curatorial thinking is also fuelled by questions pertaining to art and the political ecology of ‘self’, and the role of the author in art and filmmaking. Having co-curated all of the VisionMix events as founding director she has engaged the support of the associate international partners. The concept for the VisionMix network is that it will grow in a rhizomatic manner so that other curators will in future generate workshops in collaboration with the network, producing exhibitions, publications and wider debate in the lens-based media field adding strength to strength. Lucía also co-guest edited South Asian Trajectories with Rashmi Devi Sawhney, in Moving Image Review & Art Journal, 2018.
