An annual open submission exhibition showcasing some of the most dynamic work being made today by up-and-coming artists.

Since 1949 New Contemporaries have consistently supported contemporary visual artists to successfully transition from education into professional practice, primarily through this annual, nationally touring exhibition.

A panel comprising influential art world figures including curators, writers, and artists select participants for the exhibition. Guest selectors for Bloomberg New Contemporaries 2018 – Benedict Drew, Katy Moran (New Contemporaries alumnus 2006) and Keith Piper (New Contemporaries alumnus 1986) – have chosen 57 artists. The exhibition returns to the South London Gallery for the first time since 1999.
