New Contemporaries is recognised nationally and internationally as a reliable barometer of future trends in art. Since 1949 New Contemporaries has profiled emerging talent from the UK’s art schools through an annual open submission exhibition. Past exhibitors include Ed Atkins, Helen Chadwick, David Hockney, Chris Ofili and Simon Starling. New Contemporaries is a partner of Liverpool Biennial and has maintained a presence in the city at every Biennial since its foundation in 1998.
At Bluecoat, Bloomberg New Contemporaries 2016 features 46 artists chosen by guest selectors Anya Gallaccio, Alan Kane and Haroon Mirza. From Richie Moment’s high octane, satirical videos to Michael Cox’s detailed paintings of urban architecture, Bloomberg New Contemporaries shows the diverse approaches of emerging artists working today. Social, cultural and environmental changes to the world around us are represented in the show, with artists reflecting on geo-political turmoil, cultural legacies and environmental concerns. Bloomberg New Contemporaries 2016 is accompanied by a fully illustrated publication, and the exhibition will travel to the Institute of Contemporary Arts (ICA), London in November 2016.
