Since 1949, New Contemporaries has organised an annual, open submission, touring exhibition for current and recent graduates.


For the first time, Block 336, London, will welcome Bloomberg New Contemporaries. Following its launch at BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art, Gateshead and BALTIC’s project space at BALTIC 39, Newcastle upon Tyne, from 29 September to 26 November 2017, Block 336 will showcase work from new and recent fine art graduates from 27 January to 3 March 2018.

New Contemporaries is the leading UK organisation supporting emergent art practice from UK art schools. Since 1949 it has consistently provided a critical platform for new and recent fine art graduates primarily by means of an annual, nationally touring exhibition.

Throughout the exhibition's history a wealth of established artists have participated in New Contemporaries including post-war figures Frank Auerbach and Paula Rego; pop artists Patrick Caulfield and David Hockney; YBAs Damien Hirst and Gillian Wearing; alongside contemporary figures such as Tacita Dean, Mark Lecky, Mona Hatoum, Mike Nelson, Chris Ofili and Rebecca Warren; whilst more recent emerging artists including Ed Atkins, Marvin Gaye Chetwynd, Rachel Maclean and Laure Prouvost have also taken part.

The exhibition will bring together traditional techniques and materials alongside film and video. Themes include narratives exploring identity, as individuals and as communities; as well as truth, fiction, and the unreliability of memory with the resulting exhibition offering a unique nationwide insight into UK art schools today.
