Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery, the Barber Institute of Fine Arts, Grand Union and Wolverhampton Art Gallery together present New Art West Midlands from February 2014, a curated exhibition across venues showcasing the new work and creative talent of emerging artists in the West Midlands region.
A Turning Point West Midlands initiative, New Art West Midlands will exhibit the work of 24 artists, all of whom graduated from one of the region’s undergraduate and postgraduate fine art degree courses in the past three years: Birmingham City University, Coventry University, Staffordshire University, University of Wolverhampton and University of Worcester. Encompassing four nationally important galleries plus five universities, it is the largest partnership of its kind in England.
Five bursary artists have been selected to create new work, which will fill Grand Union’s entire space. Five artist prizewinners will also win the opportunity to undertake an exhibition, residency or project at a West Midlands gallery.
