It is obviously hard to choose from the many, many brilliant art events happening all over London this weekend, but here are two – combined in one – that are definitely worth a visit. And not only because the work of Other Criteria artist Tom Ormond is included.
Both taking place for the fifth year in a row, New Sensations and The Future Can Wait say they aim to be a counterpoint to the Frieze Art Fair by providing a platform for new artistic talent.
New Sensations is the Saatchi Gallery’s mission to find, support and award imaginative and talented young artists in the UK. The Future Can Wait, conceived by art talent hunters Zavier Ellis and Simon Rumley is an ambitious, curated, yearly exhibition of young artists with the aim to ‘offer an alternative experience to the traditional gallery and art fair systems’.
These shows are an opportunity for both ventures to present their new finds to an international audience during Frieze Week.
The exhibitions run from 11-17 October 2011 and entry is free. There will be a late opening on Saturday October 15th until 9pm.
