New Sensations 2014

Supporting the most imaginative and talented young artists in the UK

2013 Winner: Jack Stanton
2013 Finalists: Michal Baror, Glenn Kennedy and Rosie O'Grady

WELCOME TO NEW SENSATIONS 2014

New Sensations was launched seven years ago to support the most imaginative and talented young artists in the UK and to present their work to an international audience during Frieze Week.

The Prize is now established in the UK as the most important annual prize for emerging artists, and it showcases each year the best graduates studying at UK and Republic of Ireland art schools.

We are excited to present the 25 shortlisted artists for New Sensations 2014 who have been chosen by our panel of judges: gallery founder and curator Ceri Hand, renowned artist Tom Hunter, arts writer Jessica Lack, Bloomberg New Contemporaries director Kirsty Ogg, and Saatchi Art chief curator Rebecca Wilson. Works by the shortlisted artists will be shown in the New Sensations exhibition in October.
