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.
