How do you get to be a New Contemporary at the I.C.A?
Does anyone on here know how they select the artists?

Established in 1949 and presented at the ICA between 1964 and 1989, New Contemporaries is a high-profile annual event offering art students and recent graduates essential recognition and support at a crucial stage in their development. A panel comprised of influential arts figures, predominantly artists, selects participants through a rigorous process that is open, fair and democratic.

The selectors for 2010 are Gabriel Kuri, Mark Leckey and Dawn Mellor.


Most of this long list of names you'll never hear of again. People only go to these things now out of a sense of tradition. It's the degree show of their collective, and rather feeble dreams.

If you really want to be included, Mortimer, your best bet is to lobby or suck up to - 'network' in polite terms, one or more of the designated curators. Personally I'd rather torch their houses. :mrgreen:
