New Contemporaries is proud to announce it will return to A Foundation, Liverpool, this autumn. Opening on the 18 September and 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 an important and 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 - often who have themselves previously been a part of New Contemporaries - and through a rigorous process that is open, fair and democratic.

“Since the Liverpool Biennial began in the year 2000, New Contemporaries has always launched at the A Foundation. This year, 2010, we are delighted to be continuing this tradition with such a vibrant and vital selection of artists who all remind us how visual art can be.” — Rebecca Heald, Director, New Contemporaries

Exhibition continues its tour to the ICA, Institute of Contemporary Arts, London, 26 November 2010 – 16 January 2011
