New Contemporaries annual exhibition of emerging and early career artists launches in Hull at Ferens Art Gallery (Gallery 4) and Humber Street Gallery (Space 1 & 2)
The hotly anticipated 2022 exhibition includes artists selected through an open submission by internationally renowned artists James Richards, Veronica Ryan and Zadie Xa. Established in 1949, New Contemporaries gives visibility and recognition to the incredible breadth and depth of emerging talent.
It also provides vital development opportunities enabling artists’ practices to become more sustainable long-term.
Humber Street Gallery is a contemporary art space nestled in the heart of the city’s Fruit Market cultural quarter. Housed in a former fruit warehouse, the gallery will showcase the best in contemporary visual arts from the shocking to the sublime. The gallery seeks to generate debate, push boundaries, encourage new ways of thinking and inspire with a packed programme designed to appeal to those both familiar and not so familiar with the arts.
