The Institute of Contemporary Arts is proud to announce the return of Bloomberg New Contemporaries 2010 this autumn. Featuring the work of 49 artists across a range of media, the exhibition provides a unique opportunity to engage with new practice and ideas from across the UK.

Established in 1949, New Contemporaries is a highly regarded annual initiative that gives art students and recent graduates essential support and recognition at a crucial stage in their development through a high-profile exhibition.

Participants are selected by a panel comprised of influential arts figures, predominantly artists—who have often themselves previously exhibited as part of New Contemporaries—and through a rigorous process that is open, fair and democratic.

The selectors for 2010 are Gabriel Kuri, Mark Leckey and Dawn Mellor.

New Contemporaries was originally presented at the ICA between 1964 and 1989 when a series of highly acclaimed exhibitions aimed to reflect the shape of art to come and offer young artists the chance to exhibit at an organisation associated with radical, bold and experimental art forms.

Featuring: Greta Alfaro, Holly Antrum, Caline Aoun, Johann Arens, Ed Atkins, Nick Bailey, Nathan Barlex, Melis van den Berg, Alice Browne, Amir Chasson, Joe Clark, Matthew Coombes, Patrick Coyle, Keren Dee, Sophie Eagle, Claas Gutsch, Guy Haddon-Grant, Jessica Harris, Rowena Harris, Emma Hart, Darren Harvey-Regan, Raphael Hefti, Ian Homerston, Chris Shaw Hughes, Rowena Hughes, Vasileios Kantas, Krister Klassman, Sam Knowles, Alec Kronacker, Agnieszka Kucharko, Dan Lichtman, Agata Madejska, Russell Maurice, Ella McCartney, Nick Mobbs, Murray O’Grady, Chloe Ostmo, Siôn Parkinson, Peles Empire, Laure Prouvost, Kristian de la Riva, Kiwoun Shin
