About RSA New Contemporaries

The RSA New Contemporaries, supported by Walter Scott & Partners Limited, represents the RSA’s commitment to promoting contemporary art in Scotland. Now in its eleventh year, this carefully curated exhibition offers a unique opportunity to see some of Scotland’s finest emerging talent under one roof. Showcasing 63 graduates selected from the 2018 degree shows, this exhibition will feature a wonderful array of painting, sculpture, filmmaking, photography, printmaking, installation and architecture.

The selection was made by exhibition Convenor Michael Agnew RSA, with assistance from fellow Academicians and representatives from the five main colleges of art. This year the five Scottish schools of architecture are each represented by graduates selected by architecture Convenor Robin Webster RSA. The RSA is delighted to announce that the exhibition is once again kindly supported by our patrons Walter Scott & Partners Limited and, for the eleventh consecutive year, The Skinny is our Media Partner.

The RSA New Contemporaries exhibition will be accompanied by a full colour publication. Many works will be available for purchase. The RSA is part of the Own Art scheme, offering interest-free credit for people to buy contemporary art and craft. For further details visit www.ownart.org.uk

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for RSA New Contemporaries are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
