Showcasing new and recent fine art graduates, Bloomberg New Contemporaries returns to the ICA. The panel of guest selectors comprising Anya Gallaccio, Alan Kane and Haroon Mirza has chosen 46 artists who now join an illustrious roster of New Contemporaries alumni that includes Tacita Dean, Mona Hatoum, Damien Hirst, Mike Nelson and Laure Prouvost amongst many others. In July, New Contemporaries returned to Bluecoat, after 30 years to launch this year’s show as part of the Liverpool Biennial 2016, before it travels to the ICA in November. Bloomberg Philanthropies has supported the New Contemporaries since 2000. (...) Bloomberg New Contemporaries 2016, brings together artists working across a range of media with traditional techniques and materials used alongside digital applications and processes. Themes in this year’s works include: mass-production, socio-economics, gender equality and cultural identity. The resulting exhibition is both a social commentary and an indication of the emerging generations’ preoccupations.
