International Digital Fellowship – Uma Breakdown

QUAD International Digital Fellow 2023-24: Uma Breakdown 

QUAD is thrilled to announce that disabled artist, writer, and award winning game designer Uma Breakdown is QUAD International Digital Fellow 2023-2024. Uma joins previous artists such as Bruce Asbestos (UK); Seema Mattu (UK); Danielle Brathwaite-Shirley (UK/ Germany); Megan Broadmeadow (UK), Rebecca Allen (US); teamLab (Japan), and Kimchi and Chips (South Korea/ UK) as a fellow. Uma will deliver a series of talks as part of their fellowship as they work towards an exhibition in QUAD Main Gallery in late 2024.

About Uma Breakdown

I’m Uma, a disabled artist, writer, and award winning game designer interested in animals, horror, and queer feminist literature. Everything I make is about some combination of love, grief, hallucination, and an excess of joy. With Belladonna Paloma I make video games about the divine and occult providence of transfemme existence. I live in Gateshead, UK. 

Recent projects include “The Speculative Dismemberment of Agent Leon Kennedy” for Market Gallery (Glasgow, 2022), “Hinterlands” at Baltic (Gateshead 2022), “The Joy of Destruction” for Backlit (Nottingham, 2023), and my first solo exhibition “Earth A.D.” co-commissioned by and touring across Wysing Arts Centre (Cambridge, 2022), FACT (Liverpool, 2023), and QUAD (Derby, 2024).
