Join New Contemporaries director Kirsty Ogg on a walkthrough of the 2015 exhibition of Bloomsberg New Contemporaries.
Now at the ICA for six years running, this years exhibition explores themes of gender, labour, value and consumption, as well as an interest in process, the act of making, materiality and modes of production.
Bloomberg New Contemporaries is the leading UK organisation supporting emergent art practice from British art schools. Since 1949 New Contemporaries has consistently provided a critical platform for final year undergraduates, postgraduates and artists one year out of postgraduate study, primarily by means of an annual, nationally-touring exhibition. Independent of place and democratic to the core, Bloomberg New Contemporaries is open to all. Participants are selected by a panel comprising influential artists and art figures, often including artists who themselves have previously been a part of New Contemporaries.
