Showcasing final year students, graduates and artists one year out of study, the annual national touring exhibition has consistently been a barometer of contemporary art practice, shining a spotlight on the hottest talents of the year.
This year’s Bloomberg New Contemporaries participants will benefit from the new partnership with Artquest, which will deliver an events programme designed to help them capitalise on the opportunity offered and develop strategies for their future sustainability. This will comprise one-to-one advice sessions alongside an ongoing national programme of peer mentoring sessions presented with New Contemporaries’ partner venues network.
As a National portfolio organisation, New Contemporaries is a registered charity supported using public funding by Arts Council England.
