The Saatchi Gallery & Channel 4’s New Sensations and The Future can Wait are returning for the third year to present to the international art world the biggest exhibition of emerging to mid-career artists in London during Frieze week this October.
Established as London’s biggest and most exciting independently curated event, it will be possible to see the most vibrant 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 by Absolut, and The Future can Wait, 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 60 artists working in painting, sculpture, installation, video and photography. All works will be for sale. In a unique initiative, works by artists from The Future can Wait section will be available to buy on the new online platform Kids of Dada for one week before and three weeks after the show.
The exhibition will take place at Victoria House in Bloomsbury Square, a stunning 22,000 sq ft space very close to the British Museum. The exhibition will run from 12-17 October 2013 and will be free entry. There will be an invitation only VIP Preview on the morning of 12 October.
The artists in both New Sensations and The Future can Wait will be announced soon.
