The Photographers’ Gallery launches New Talent ‘21

London

The Photographers' Gallery (TPG) has just launched TPG New Talent (TNT), a dedicated exhibition and mentoring programme identifying and supporting the most exciting and relevant UK-based emerging artists working within the photographic medium.

This year’s selected artists are Heather Agyepong, Jessica Bernard, Ollie Gapper, Mariam Sholaja, RAKE Collective and Wing Ka Ho Jimmi.

These incredible artists were chosen from an open call by the Brazilian artist, Rosângela Rennó along with TPG Senior Curator, Karen McQuaid who were looking for approaches and work that they felt demonstrated a clear declaration of intent and were visually strong and coherent. While all of the six projects selected for TNT 21 are highly individual, they collectively share a sense of enquiry, social responsibility and sensitivity towards their subject matter that feels particularly resonant in 2021.

For TNT 21, TPG have created a dedicated online exhibition platform to showcase each artists’ work. As well, a selection of works from each artist will be displayed in TPG’s new open-air public space, Soho Photography Quarter as a precursor to its official opening in Spring 2022.
