9. New Contemporaries Exhibition - Various (UK)

Leeds Art Gallery will be celebrating Light Night with a special late night opening.

Come and explore the darkened corners of the gallery and take-in the new exhibitions and collection displays including New Contemporaries. Launching for the first time this year in Leeds, 2019 marks New Contemporaries 70th anniversary. Since 1949, New Contemporaries has organised an annual open submission exhibition for emerging artists.

This high-profile platform has become nationally recognised as a barometer of work emerging from UK art schools and alternative programmes. This year’s artists were selected by artists Rana Begum, Sonia Boyce and Ben Rivers.

Exhibition until 17 November 2019. Image: Alexei Alexander Izmaylov, Lape Sul Naso (Bee On The Nose), 2018.
