The Saatchi Gallery & Channel 4’s New Sensations and THE FUTURE CAN WAIT are returning this year to present to the international art world the biggest exhibition of emerging and established artists in London during Frieze week this October.
Under one roof, it will be possible to see the most exciting young artists working in the UK today, enabling collectors, curators and gallerists to discover the best graduates fresh out of college, young artists in the early stages of their careers and artists with established reputations.
New Sensations, sponsored this year by Absolut, and THE FUTURE CAN WAIT, presented in association with Hallett Independent art insurers; Maxtrans art transportation; and Jeremiah Weed Brews, were initiated in 2007. New Sensations was launched by the Saatchi Gallery and Channel 4 to find and support the most imaginative and talented young artists in the UK and to present their work to an international audience during Frieze week. THE FUTURE CAN WAIT was launched by Zavier Ellis and Simon Rumley as an ambitious, curated exhibition of emerging to mid-career artists to offer an alternative experience to the traditional gallery and art fair systems.
New Sensations and THE FUTURE CAN WAIT will present over 50 artists working in painting, sculpture, installation, video and photography. All works will be for sale.
The exhibition will take place at Victoria House in Bloomsbury Square, a 22,000 sq ft space very close to the British Museum. The exhibition will run from 9-14 October 2012 and will be free entry. There will be an invitation only private view on Monday 8 October.
The artists in both New Sensations and THE FUTURE CAN WAIT will be announced soon.
