Bloomberg New Contemporaries is the leading UK organisation supporting emergent art practice from British Art Schools. Since 1949 New Contemporaries has consistently provided a critical platform for new and recent fine art graduates primarily by means of an annual, nationally touring exhibition. Independent of place and democratic to the core, New Contemporaries is open to all. Exhibition participants are selected by a panel predominantly made up of artists and writers by means of a rigorous two-stage process.
The selectors for 2012 were Cullinan Richards, Nairy Baghramian, Rosalind Nashashibi.
Bloomberg New Contemporaries 2012 will open in Liverpool in September as part of the Liverpool Biennial. In November the show comes to the ICA in London, until January 2013.
