Kirsty Ogg, Director Bloomberg New Contemporaries and Caroline Douglas, Director Contemporary Art Society give a roaming ‘in-conversation’ through the Bloomberg New Contemporaries 2014 exhibition at the ICA followed by Members winter drinks

The Contemporary Art Society are delighted to invite our Members and the public to a roaming ‘in-conversation’ through Bloomberg New Contemporaries.

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. Participants are selected by a panel comprising influential art figures including curators, writers, and artists (who have often themselves previously been a part of the New Contemporaries), and a rigorous process that considers the work within a broad cultural context. This year the selectors are: Marvin Gaye Chetwynd, Enrico David and Goshka Macuga.

Exhibiting artists are: Lucy Beech, Dinah Berger, Louise Bradley,  Jesc Bunyard, Matt Copson, Racheal Crowther, Yi Dai, Tajinder Dhami, Bee Flowers, Alice Gauthier, Marco Godoy, Victoria Grenier, Stacey Guthrie, Alice Hartley, Katie Hayward, Ed Hill, Yussef Hu, Matthew Humphreys, Henry Hussey, Marie Jacotey-Voyatzis, Lucy Joyce, Melissa Kime, MKLK, Xiao-Yang Li, Inga Lineviciute, Andrea Medjesi-Jones, Jonathan Meira, Ebrel Moore, Emily Motto, Emely Neu, Laura O’Neill, Lydia Ourahmane, Athena Papadopoulos, Catherine Parsonage, Imran Perretta, Miroslav Pomichal, Charles Richardson, Simon Senn, Xin Shen, Will Sheridan Jr., Mustafa Sidki, David Cyrus Smith, Marilia Stagkouraki, Jane Stobart, Camille Summers-Valli, John Thole, Ian Tricker, Milou van der Maaden, Tess Vaughan, Adam Wallace, Deborah Westmancoat, Jospeh Whitmore, Frances Williams, Ben Zawalich and Adam Zoltowski.

This special and exclusive roaming talk also marks the close of our Autumn / Winter programme and we warmly extend an invitation to stay on at the ICA bar for a glass of wine to celebrate the holiday season.
