On view through January 23, 2010 the ICA London has brought New Contemporaries back to the museum. It’s a push for new artists, fresh from school, and still unfettered by the wheels of the art world. 49 artists are represented in total.
“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 show is neither curated nor judged. It simply works as an organized space to get to know the newest emerging talents.
