Since 1949, New Contemporaries has presented an annual survey exhibition of emerging and early career artists from UK art schools and alternative peer-to-peer learning programmes. This year’s exhibition includes 55 artists selected by internationally renowned artists Helen Cammock, Sunil Gupta, and Heather Phillipson.
This is the first time New Contemporaries has travelled to Blackpool. The exhibition presents a rich diversity of voices and approaches to making including painting, sculpture, moving image, drawing, performance and sound. The works are presented thematically and reflect some of the concerns and interests of this generation of emerging artists.
