As part of the New Contemporaries exhibition, New Writing with New Contemporaries has been developed in collaboration with Yorkshire artist Nick Thurston and art writing platform Corridor8.

From a shortlist generated by a prestigious group of nominators and New Contemporaries alumni, six emerging artists from across the UK have been selected to participate in the programme.

With writing central to the practice of each, the artists will showcase their public performances at the gallery. Literature, performance writing and spoken word are increasingly popular forms for contemporary art practice, yet are often challenging to showcase in exhibitions. This programme aims to develop a new model for supporting and publicly presenting experimental writing by talented emerging artists from across the UK.
