New Contemporaries is the leading organisation supporting emergent art practice from UK art schools. Since 1949 New Contemporaries has consistently provided a critical platform for new and recent fine art graduates. Independent of place and democratic to the core, New Contemporaries is open to all. Participants are selected by a panel comprising influential art figures including curators, writers, and artists often who have themselves previously been a part of the New Contemporaries, and a rigorous process that considers the work within a broad cultural context.
