New Contemporaries and the Art Fund present a symposium bringing together New Contemporary alumni artists with writers and curators to address the challenges facing emerging artists working in the UK today. Panels present an informed survey of how an artist’s practice is developed, defined and cared for today, with speakers discussing the contemporary state of education, the market and art collections, alongside the issue of how to support practice.
