Camden Art Centre will host New Contemporaries for the first time in over 20 years.
Since 1949, New Contemporaries has presented an annual survey exhibition of emerging and early career artists from UK art schools and alternative peer-to-peer learning programmes. 2023's exhibition includes 55 artists selected through an open call by internationally renowned artists Helen Cammock, Sunil Gupta, and Heather Phillipson.
The exhibition presents an important picture of emerging practices taking place across the UK today. Recurrent themes in the artists’ work include care, kinship, climate justice, world-building, geographical borders and identity politics, and are explored through diverse approaches and mediums. The exhibition is a unique platform that provides emerging artists the opportunity to present their work to a wider audience, alongside a programme of artist development opportunities to support the growth of their practice.
