Salon Contemporary is on the quest to discover the most ground-breaking and ambitious new graduates ready to be thrust into the contemporary art scene as part of a landmark annual event held at the thriving Notting Hill gallery. Best of British’ is an incredibly exciting competition hosted by Salon Contemporary and Friedrich Gräfling. After a renowned panel of judges have reviewed the submissions, the short listed artists will have their work displayed at Salon Contemporary in April 2011, with the chance of national exposure and international opportunities.

We’re calling on artists in their final year of BA or MA within arts institutions to apply - from the visual arts to performance and film! This is not just any London exhibition; “Best of British heralds the arrival of the next generation of precocious, era defining artists.

StrangMacfarlane - The fearless duo and their 'distinctively British Work' (Showtime, UCL)


The Artists at Salon Contemporary this Summer

The artists explore and exploit the intricacies of the relationship between viewer and artwork. Their works play on the unwritten etiquette and understandings that govern the gallery and tackle the pre-conceived values the viewer attaches to the art, the artist and one’s self as a conscious body.

'Charmingly obnoxious, with again an intelligent use of spectacle the works were attractive in precisely the same way as the visual branding and marketing the works were irreverently interrogating.' 
Tom Clack on StrangMacfarlane's St. Martins degree show
