NEW ART WEST MIDLANDS

New Work by Recent Local Graduates

New Art West Midlands is a brand-new collaborative venture in partnership with Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery and Grand Union, Birmingham, and funded by the Arts Council for England.

From a bicycle wrapped in wool, through poignant photography, to a witty and entertaining animation: the best critically-engaged work by recent graduates from the West Midlands’ university art schools is showcased at the Barber in this exciting, contemporary art exhibition. This award exhibition aims to help provide a crucial bridge for young artists between training and the first steps in a professional career.
