Guest selectors Anya Gallaccio, Alan Kane and Haroon Mirza chose 46 artists, exhibiting their work first as a part of the Liverpool Biennial 2016 and now at the Institute of Contemporary Art in London.
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.
Gregor Muir, ICA Executive Director, commented “We’re thrilled to be welcoming back Bloomberg New Contemporaries. For 70 years, the ICA has been at the forefront of cutting edge arts and culture offering a living space for artists to experiment with ideas. Supporting young and emerging artists sits at the very core of our ethos and we’re proud to give talented creatives a platform to exhibit their work. Each year, the varied works explore different themes of inquiry and this year’s selection deals with key contemporary issues such as identity, materiality, technology and urban living.”
