Jin Han Lee and Hyojun Hyun @ New Sensations 2012


We are delighted to announce the 20 shortlisted artists whose work will be in the New Sensations exhibition in London in October 2012. We had over 800 entries this year, the highest number since the prize started in 2007, so it is an incredible achievement to be shortlisted by the prestigious panel of judges. The judges have also chosen four finalists from the shortlist of 20. They will each be given a bursary to make a new work to present at the exhibition and they will be invited to work with Channel 4 to make a short film about their work which will be aired in October. New Sensations was launched in 2007 to find and support the most imaginative and talented artists graduating in the UK and the Republic of Ireland. Since it was started five years ago the Prize has given young graduates many opportunities – they have sold their work, been taken on by galleries, invited to be in exhibitions both in the UK and internationally, and shortlisted for other prizes as a result of their work being seen in the New Sensations exhibition. The prize is open to all art students who are graduating from a BA or MA course at an art school or a fine art/photography department of a UK or Republic of Ireland university or college in 2012. The winner of the prize, chosen by the judges, will be awarded prize money to support their future artistic endeavours.

Date: 9 – 15 Oct. 2012
Venue: B1, Victoria House, Bloomsbury Square, WC1B 4DA London, United Kingdom
