Founded in 1949, New Contemporaries is established both nationally and internationally as a reliable barometer of future trends in art. With Bloomberg’s support of New Contemporaries now in its 17th year, the national touring exhibition will launch from 9 July to 16 October 2016 at Bluecoat, Liverpool, marking a return to that venue after 30 years. Forming part of Liverpool Biennial 2016, of which New Contemporaries has been an integral part since 1999, the exhibition will then tour to ICA, London, from 23 November 2016.
Carless is also exhibiting in ‘Sweat’, a one day event and exhibition at Camden Arts Centre, London.
Sweat presents the conjoining of nine sculptural artworks and bodies, drawing on corporal practises that relate to spirituality as well as the health and leisure industries. During this one-day event, physical works, bodily actions and recorded sounds will amalgamate to form a sculptural performance where contortions of the body stretch out in all manner of forms.
The event takes place on 23 April, 2.00 – 3.00pm & 3.30 – 4.30pm. As well as Carless, includes works by Sheena Leach, Mette Boel, Doujin Kim, Caroline Mackenzie, Alicia Tsigarides, Jin He Park, Julia Parkinson, Holly Hendry.
