14 July – 9 September

New Contemporaries offers an insight into today’s creative practices, showcasing some of the most dynamic work being made by emerging artists. Established in 1949, this is the first year New Contemporaries profiles emerging talent from alternative as well as formal learning programmes from across the UK. Past exhibitors include post-war figures Frank Auerbach and Paula Rego; pop artists Patrick Caulfield and David Hockney; YBAs Damien Hirst and Gillian Wearing; contemporary figures such as Tacita Dean and Mike Nelson; whilst more recent emerging artists include Ed Atkins and Laure Prouvost.

Hosted for the first time at Liverpool School of Art & Design, Liverpool John Moores University, Bloomberg New Contemporaries 2018 features 57 artists chosen by guest selectors Benedict Drew, Katy Moran (New Contemporaries alumnus 2006) and Keith Piper (New Contemporaries alumnus 1986).

The exhibition will travel to the South London Gallery in December 2018.
