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. The ICA is delighted to be working with Bloomberg New Contemporaries, having previously hosted the exhibition between 1964-1989, before seeing its welcome return in 2010.
