Newcomer exhibition coming to Southwark
WHEN: 6 December 2019 – 23 February 2020
WHERE: South London Gallery
Bloomberg New Contemporaries returns to the South London Gallery with an exhibition of works by 45 emerging artists presented across both the Main Gallery and Fire Station. A guest panel comprising artists Rana Begum, Sonia Boyce and Ben Rivers selected participants from over 1,500 applications to the annual open-submission exhibition.
The show marks the 70th anniversary of New Contemporaries, which since 1949 has played a vital part in the story of contemporary British art, reflecting and responding to developments in artistic practice, and supporting artists.
With its new fire-station building, and a history of shows by artists including Katharina Grosse and Lawrence Weiner, The South London Gallery is fast becoming one of the city’s most important art spaces.
