Every year since 1949, New Contemporaries has been working to promote and support new and emerging artists from UK art schools. By supporting artists as well as promoting them with their annual exhibition, they hope to make art an open and active community. Each year a number of artists are selected for inclusion in the exhibition as well as additional support including 1-1 mentoring and access to studio bursaries and more. This screening is the opening event for the full exhibition and allows the audience to appreciate each selected artist’s works on the big screen. It beings with an introduction to the programme, the artists and their work as well as a discussion about new media and video work in contemporary art. Afterwards there will be an opportunity to meet some of the artists and mix with contemporaries. The exhibition will then be on display at the Baltic Center for Contemporary Art in Gateshead and at BALTIC 39, before touring to Block 336 in Brixton where it will be on display until March 3rd. Tickets are required and must be booked in advance online – there is a student discount available. It will be held Upstairs at the Ritzy Cinema, a few minutes walk from Brixton Station on Coldharbour lane.
