REFLECTIONS ON EMERGING: NEW BRITISH ARTISTS’ FILM AND VIDEO

The idea of a ‘new’ or ‘emerging’ artist is both problematic and difficult to define. An emerging artist is taken to mean an artist who is crossing over from obscurity into a public arena in which s/he comes to the attention of new groups or individuals.
Art circuits are notoriously closed and there are always artists who are left out or don’t want to participate in institutional or commercial art systems. However, there are spaces, individuals and organisations committed to challenging this situation.
