New Art West Midlands 2018 showcases works from some of the West Midlands’ most exciting artists. Celebrating its sixth year, it is now open at Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery; The Herbert Art Gallery and Museum, Coventry and AirSpace Gallery, Stoke-on-Trent.
Twenty-eight artists, all of whom have graduated in the past three years, have been selected to exhibit. The exhibition includes new large-scale installations, sculpture, photography, video, animation, paintings and digital artworks, exploring themes of identity, artificial intelligence, blurred reality and more. Although all artists are recent graduates with BA, MA and PhD level degrees, this year’s cohort includes work from a number of mature students embarking upon new directions in their careers.
We are looking forward to evaluating New Art West Midlands for a second year.
