Everything that’s New in Art from Bloomberg New Contemporaries

Are you ready to discover the art of the future? The new edition of Bloomberg New Contemporaries is on its way, charged with novelty and exuberance. From the program of support and promotion that, since 1949, Bloomberg Philanthropies has dedicated to emerging artists, major names like David Hockney and Patrick Caulfield, Damien Hirst and Gillian Wearing, Tacita Dean, Mona Hatoum, Chris Ofili and Laure Prouvost have come to the fore. Now it’s time for almost 50 new artists, who have centred their studies on using traditional materials and techniques, such as film and video installations. This year’s theme is the narration of identity, either individual or of the community. While Eleanor Breeze attempts to put her family memories on canvas, Melissa Magnuson takes on questions of power, the environment and collective identity through photography that stitches together fragments of stories and half-truths, and Michaela Yearwood-Dan speaks of the encounter between the Tropics and the reality of Urban London through the experience of a second generation black woman in Britain. Objective views of reality, subjective memories and fiction come together in a mosaic to explore, which, above all, paints a portrait of youthful art Made in the UK.
