Abstract or Description

Organised in partnership with Art Fund New Contemporaries 1949 to Now: alumni artists address the contemporary conditions of art practice, brought together New Contemporaries alumni artists with writers and curators, to address the challenges facing emerging artists working in the UK today. Panels present an informed survey of how an artist’s practice is developed, defined and cared for today, with speakers discussing the contemporary state of education, the market and art collections, alongside the issue of how to support practice.

Moderated by Kirsty Ogg. Panels chaired by Patricia Bickers (Editor, Art Monthly) and Iwona Blazwick (Director, Whitechapel Gallery), speakers include the artists Basil Beattie, Neil Cummings, Dexter Dalwood, Bruce Lacey, Yelena Popova, Bob & Roberta Smith and Rachel Whiteread, alongside industry experts Sarah Philp, Head of Programmes at the Art Fund, and Hugo Worthy, Leicester Arts and Museums Service.
