The New Current is a Rotterdam based platform for artists at the start of their career. The organisation produces a yearly thematic exhibition solely with works of artists that graduated no longer then five years ago. With an additional program around network expansion, entry to the market and professional development, The New Current responds to the current situation within the art market. The domination of large galleries and art fairs creates a difficult position for starting artists who want to enter it. With the additional demise of smaller art spaces that focus on experimental presentations, it’s becoming even more challenging for young talents to develop, present and prove themselves. With The New Current we want to offer young and promising artists a new, much needed platform.
