The highly regarded New Contemporaries exhibition is a snapshot of today’s emerging art landscape featuring 49 artists working across film, sculpture, photography, painting, animation and performance. Offering unparalleled access to new practice and ideas from across the UK, this exhibition sits at the heart of a dynamic and discursive programme of discussions, workshops and performances for both artists and audiences.
Established in 1949 and presented at the ICA between 1964 and 1989, New Contemporaries is a high-profile annual event offering art students and recent graduates essential recognition and support at a crucial stage in their development. A panel comprised of influential arts figures, predominantly artists, selects participants through a rigorous process that is open, fair and democratic.
The selectors for 2010 are Gabriel Kuri, Mark Leckey and Dawn Mellor.
