New Contemporaries

Providing a platform for emerging artists

The Royal Scottish Academy New Contemporaries 2016 exhibition, which runs from March 5-30 and is supported by Walter Scott and Partners Limited, will showcase the work of 61 graduates from 2015 degree shows, featuring a wonderful array of painting, sculpture, film making, photography, printmaking architecture and installation.

The selection was chosen by exhibition convener Stuart Mackenzie with assistance from fellow academics and representatives from the five main colleges of art.

With £40,000 worth of monetary, residency, studio and purchase prizes, this exhibition is an important initiative for emerging artists in Scotland, and is open to the public.

Our photos show Allyson Fraser, graduate from Duncan of Jordanstone, Dundee, putting the finishing touches to her display.
