About me
Zaiba Jabbar is an award-winning director, commissioner, independent curator, moving image artist, and founder of Hervisions. I’m interested in the democratisation and accessibility by how we experience art outside the white cube. My curatorial project Hervisons is an investigation into how people in the margins are using technology to create art outside of traditional formats, making space for themselves through the experience of expanded moving image. I am a leader in augmented reality and digital art exhibitions online and offline working with clients and institutes that include Tate Modern, Tate Britain, Art Night, i-D, Chanel, LUX, Google Arts and Culture, Selfridges, Adidas, IAMSOUND, The London College of Fashion, Loom Festival, Specta, Ghosting.TV, Mira Festival and The Mosaic Room. I have nearly 10 years experience working across the music, art and fashion sectors working with clients that include Unilever, Droga 5, Snapchat, Asos, Nowness, Burberry, Benefit, Virgin EMI, Parlophone, XL Records, Citroen, Domino Records, MTV, Levis, i-D, Vice and From concept to realisation sourcing collaborators and teams to garner the best and most unique outcome for each project. Whilst also maintaining flair, innovation and awareness of trends that inherently filter through into my work. Creating original concept driven work. As well as developing concepts for artists and brands I have huge resources for production to help facilitate projects at all levels of production. I love making things happen. Curator in residence at LUX in 2018 and is a board member of Abandon Normal Devices.

    Mood film for William Richard Green. The designer and I wanted to create a film using light in constant motion. The Rubber Jacket especially absorbed and displayed the moving pin prick lights beautifully.
