Bloomberg New Contemporaries 2004


Bloomberg New Contemporaries 2004 offers a significant launch pad for emerging artists, a choice selection of the exceptional. This year, the lift-off for burgeoning careers takes place in a spectacular new project space, The Coach Shed.

Acquired by the afoundation for the longer term, the building has been specially converted into a stunning temporary exhibition space where you can witness the energies, ideas, potential and promise of the next generation of artists.

Every year, New Contemporaries showcases the work of fine art graduates, selected from a national submssion from the UK art schools. The 2004 show features the work of 32 artists, selected from a submission of over 1200. Immerse yourself in a dynamic mix of media, including film, video, drawing, painting, photography, performance and sculpture.

Step inside the building and you will find everything from the carefully considered to the startlingly impetuous. A life-size Bendy Bus is parked in the space, making reference to the building's original purpose. Discreet photographs of moonlight on a suburban washing line. A manic sketchbook of intensely detailed psychodelic biro-drawings. The tension between an elderly married couple subtly captured in a compelling film.
