Abstract

For over 100 years, the Contemporary Art Society has worked to identify emerging talent and provide support for artists from all over the UK. The organisation's latest exhibition at 59 Central Street, Tip of the Iceberg, showcases a selection of works by artists based in the North of England. Curated by Mark Doyle and Rebecca Morrill of Contemporary Art Society North, the display aims to bring these artists to the attention of a broader audience.

Tip of the Iceberg presents a selection of work by around half of the North-based artists who have participated in the Contemporary Art Society North programme since it launched in 2009. There are over 40 works on display by 28 artists aged from their twenties to their sixties. Some of these artists were born and raised in the North, others have returned to the North, and a number have relocated to the North from elsewhere. Media ranges from painting, drawing, sculpture and printmaking, to film and installation.

Featured artists include Iain Andrews, Eric Bainbridge, Catherine Bertola, Andrew Bracey, Pavel Büchler, Tony Charles, James Clarkson, Rachael Clewlow, Samantha Donnelly, Graham Dolphin, Leo Fitzmaurice, Susie Green, Dave Griffiths, Mary Griffiths, Matthew Houlding, Nick Kennedy, Laura Lancaster, Harry Meadley, Paul Merrick, Tim Machin, Anne Vibeke Mou, Michael Mulvihill, Emily Speed, David Steans, Cecilia Stenbom, Matt Stokes, Imogen Stidworthy and Rafal Topolewski.

The inclusion of work by an older generation alongside young, emerging talent reflects the ecology of the North where established artists like Bainbridge, Buchler and Stidworthy have accepted teaching posts and are playing a lead role in attracting and supporting the development of a younger generation of artists.
