    New Contemporaries, London

    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. 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.

    The Bloomberg New Contemporaries 2016 exhibition has been at Bluecoat, Liverpool, as part of the Liverpool Biennial 2016 and followed being at the ICA, London. Bloomberg Philanthropies has supported the New Contemporaries since 2000. 

    New Contemporaries has selected 6 artists from its 2015 Artist List to be commissioned to create one work each for Daata Editions. The artists are Melanie Eckersley, Hannah Ford, Jasmine Johnson, Scott Lyman, Scott Mason, Abri de Swardt.
