Rowland Hill (b.1989) is an artist based in London working across performance, moving image, text and sound. Her work plays with systems of communication, interpretation and narrative, and often draws on her background in theatre and music. She has performed and exhibited at spaces and events including the ICA (London), The Horse Hospital (London), Copenhagen Contemporary Arts Centre, Aldeburgh Music, Splendor (Amsterdam), Flux Factory (New York), Colombo Art Biennale (Sri Lanka) and the Whitworth Art Gallery (Manchester). In 2017 she received the Clare Winsten Memorial Award from the Slade School of Fine Art where she recently completed her Masters degree.

Rowland also puts on interdisciplinary performance events and is the founder and co-director of Video Jam, an event series which commissions and programmes moving image works with live sound that are staged in collaboration with cultural partners across the UK and beyond. She has curated over 45 film programmes to date, most recently Video Jam x Basquiat at the Barbican Hall, the closing event to the UK's first major exhibition of work by Jean-Michel Basquiat, which was featured in The Guardian's unmissable culture of 2018. Video Jam won the Manchester People's Cultural Award 2018.
