New Contemporaries is the leading UK organisation supporting emergent art practice from British art schools, whose aim is to promote and provide a platform for new and recent fine art graduates. In our current issue, we spoke with the director of Bloomberg New Contemporaries, Kirsty Ogg about the latest artists to join this year’s exhibition. After opening as an integral part of the Liverpool biennial in late September, the collection is now heading further South to London, where it will remain until late January.
With previous New Contemporaries including the Chapman Brothers, Damien Hirst and David Hockney, there is always electricity in the air at the show, with new artists showcasing their potential to join the ranks of the modern masters. This year, the final selection for the show promises to deliver a range of innovative practice, including moving image, printmaking and performance, with artists exploring themes ranging from current affairs to human behaviour and the body. Whether it be Alice Hartley’s bold large scale screen prints or Yi Dai’s poetic and subtle paintings, the exhibition will appeal to anyone looking to have their perspective challenged.
From 26th November to 25th January, the exhibition will be at the Institute for Contemporary Arts, where the public can come to see the work of the fifty five participants involved in the show. To find out more about the exhibition, and to read more about our discussions with a few of the artists on display, pick up a copy of the latest ROOMS and check out the website.
