“Some of the top artists now exhibiting regularly in Scotland – and a few of those running art spaces around the country – showed for the first time at RSA New Contemporaries after newly graduating”. Andrew Cattanach, The Skinny, March 2012

OPEN DIALOGUES outlines the Academy’s commitment to supporting the careers of emerging artists by showcasing six artists from our successful RSA New Contemporaries exhibitions, which started as an annual event in 2009.  One artist has been selected from each year and chosen for their impact upon contemporary practice, their proven track record since New Contemporaries and, of course, the excellence of the work.  The exhibition will feature new work from each artist so expect painting, printmaking, installation and performance-based work! 

The exhibition will be curated and presented by The Royal Scottish Academy of Art and Architecture with additional support from Creative Scotland.
