Bloomberg New Contemporaries 2020 Digital Platform
Celebrating the breadth of art practice emerging from the UK’s art schools and alternative education programmes, New Contemporaries has launched a specially created digital platform for Bloomberg New Contemporaries 2020, showcasing the work of the 36 artists selected by internationally-renowned artists Alexandre da Cunha, Anthea Hamilton and Linder. Developed in dialogue with the selected artists and designed by Hato Press, the platform provides an opportunity to see some of the UK’s most dynamic art practices from the next generation of contemporary artists.
It was planned that the New Contemporaries 2020 exhibition would launch in Hull this September at Humber Street Gallery and Ferens Art Gallery. In the context of the COVID-19 global pandemic, the difficult decision was taken to postpone working together on a physical exhibition until 2022 when we can fully activate our partnership and have a greater impact on audiences and the artistic community in Hull. This decision was reached with our partners, trustees, and artists to ensure the wellbeing and safety of all. We want to thank all of the selected artists for trusting us with their work and for collaborating with us on this exciting platform for the 2020 cohort.
In addition to images, texts, sounds and moving image work, a newly commissioned audio response by artist and curator Morgan Quaintance will be presented on the platform, alongside contributions by a new generation of UK based curators and writers including
Chloe Austin, Sophie Bownes, Priyesh Mistry, Tendai Mutambu, Riet Timmerman, Lily Tonge & George Watson. New Contemporaries will be adding new content over the next few months such as workshops, artist blogs and vlogs and other digital projects.
The artists selected for Bloomberg New Contemporaries 2020 are: Sangbum Ahn, Ned Armstrong, Paul Barlow, Alexandre Canonico, Chen Si-zuo, Nicole Coson, Gabriella Davies, Lúcás Dillon, Ufuoma Essi, Jake Grewal, Clara Hastrup, Nimmi Hutnik, Lily Kemp, Maria
