Saatchi Gallery and Channel 4 are delighted to announce this year’s New Sensations Prize for art students graduating from BA and MA courses in the UK and Republic of Ireland in 2011.

The 20 shortlisted students will present their work in an exhibition at Victoria House, Bloomsbury Square, London WC1, from 11-17 October 2011.

New Sensations, supported this year by specialist insurer Hiscox, was launched in 2007 by the Saatchi Gallery and Channel 4 to find the most imaginative and talented artists graduating in the UK and to support students leaving art college.

Since it was started five years ago the Prize has given young graduates many opportunities – they have sold their work, been taken on by galleries, invited to be in exhibitions both in the UK and internationally and shortlisted for other prizes as a result of their work being seen in the New Sensations exhibition.

This year’s judges are: artists Hew Locke and Chantal Joffe; Kate Bush, Head of Barbican Art Galleries, Tabitha Jackson, Commissioning Editor, Arts, Channel 4; Tony Chambers, editor-in-chief, Wallpaper magazine; and Rebecca Wilson, Associate Director, Saatchi Gallery.

The four finalists are: Gabriella Boyd Glasgow School of Art; Ronin Cho Goldsmiths, University of London; Krystina Naylor Nottingham Trent University; and Jonny Briggs Royal College of Art, London.

New Sensations and The Future Can Wait will run from 11-17 October, 11.00am – 6.30pm, at Victoria House, Bloomsbury Square, London WC1. Free entry. Invitation only private view on Monday 10 October.
