East Wing Biennial 13 introduces SURGE, a unique exhibition of student talent.

A glimpse into the future of the contemporary art scene, this year’s exhibition will see the work of emerging artists curated by future directors and curators. Building on the established reputation of the Institute this is a unique opportunity for up and coming artists to exhibit their work at Somerset House open to the public, students and academics alike.

All submissions that reach the guidelines will be considered for an exclusive place in this spring’s exhibition at the Courtauld Institute of Art. Over four opening events emerging artists’ work will be displayed in the North East Wing of Somerset House.

SURGE represents the influx of talent, skill, and creativity that studying artists bring to the contemporary London art scene. East Wing Biennial 13 is looking for reflections on what it is like to be an emerging artist.
