"For those of us who want and need to know what is actually happening and is important on the frontiers of British contemporary art practice, I really believe this show must not be missed"

- Meredith Etherington-Smith



 ANTICIPATION showcases the talents of London's finest new art talent, collated by three of the sharpest-eyed contemporary curators in the UK - Flora Fairbairn, Kay Saatchi and Catriona Warren. Fairbairn, Saatchi and Warren join forces for the first time to present these stars of the future. With their pedigree of spotting emerging talent, Anticipation brings together the very best of Londons young artists. The three curators have spent over two years developing Anticipation and have invested much time visiting graduate shows at Camberwell, Central St Martins, Chelsea, City & Guilds, Goldsmiths, London College of Communication, Royal Academy, Royal College of Art, Slade and Wimbledon, making dozens of studio visits to artists. The trio has conducted intimate and thorough research to establish these artists ideas and all aspects of their artistic integrity in order to present a selection they feel have the creative and intellectual stature to continue to produce thought provoking work for years to come. This philanthropic show has been created to provide a platform from which new talent can be launched to a mass audience, with the artists receiving 100% of the sales.
