25 - 26 October 2019

Marking its 70th anniversary this year, New Contemporaries will celebrate its legacy and future direction with a two-day conference with The Research Forum, Courtauld Institute of Art. The conference programme will address the development of New Contemporaries as it continually evolves to support the needs of emerging artists and practices. Established in 1949, New Contemporaries, formerly Young Contemporaries, is the longest-running support platform for emerging artists.

The programme will explore different aspects of representation and visibility for emerging arts, bringing into dialogue artists, curators, writers and artworks from New Contemporaries history alongside contributors drawn from the Courtauld’s alumni network of curators, artists and art historians.

Location: The Courtauld Institute of Art, Vernon Square, Penton Rise, Kings Cross London WC1X 9EW
