The 9th edition of NEU NOW will be held from 14-17 September 2017 at Westergasfabriek, Amsterdam.

For this year’s edition the international jury selected a fresh batch of exceptional artists graduating from art academies across Europe and beyond. During NEU NOW 2017 they will present their work and participate in a programme that is designed to empower emerging talents. Empowering Exceptional Talent NEU NOW is Amsterdam’s only art festival devoted to presenting emerging artists from all disciplines. As such, we encourage and promote the fluid character of the artistic disciplines and present a programme in which exhibitions, performances, workshops, screenings and artist talks converge to provide new perspectives. All activities are aimed at creating future opportunities and empowering the selected artists in making a living from the arts. To ensure the maximum impact of our programme, selected talents are recent graduates of one of the major higher arts education institutions & universities of the ELIA network. Successful artists who participated in past editions include Sophie Dros (NL), Robert Glas (NL), Reber Dosky (NL), Nina Gantz (BE), Vika Eksta (LV), Darek Fortas (PL) and the International Gastronautical Society (CH).

Building on a Rich Tradition During the past eight editions NEU NOW has presented works of over 750 international talents from all disciplines and an array of international art schools. Since its founding in 2009 the event traveled to Vilnius, Tallinn, Nantes, Porto, Amsterdam and Glasgow. In 2015 we returned to Amsterdam, where we found a permanent home.

NEU NOW is an initiative of ELIA – European League of Institutes of the Arts.
