New British Art is an artists’ collective based in South West Wales.
The organisation first grew up as a grass roots studio group in the Grangetown area of Cardiff in 2009. It was set up to enable collaborations between artists at different stages in their career on ambitious projects that individuals might struggle to get off the ground. Moving to Carmarthenshire in 2010 the project continued with an emphasis on the setting up of studios, workshops and the Cilyrynys teaching foundry, from where NBA has established a stable base for their operations.
This year we plan to grow again the collaborative works project through a set of planned commissioned exhibitions and texts presented online and in our showing space at Cilyrynys. This will be accompanied by an ongoing video bog.
The group want to:
promote the creation of ambitious new collaborative works
encourage younger or recent graduates to work with more experienced artists on new projects
seek to widen the audience for the appreciation of the artworks
develop new links with other organisations in the UK and overseas
make funding applications to support the collaborative activity
