In conjunction with Frieze London this year, the New Sensations exhibition has opened at Victoria House, showcasing the best graduating art talent from across the UK and Ireland.

Shortlisted for this year’s prize are finalists Michal Baror from the prestigious Royal College of Art, Glenn Kennedy and Rosie O’Grady from Glasgow School of Art, and Jack Stanton, a graduate of The Ruskin School and Oxford University. Finalists were whittled down from a group of 20 to four, for submissions that spanned the mediums of fine art painting to video installations and sculpture. Work was judged by some of the leading figures in the contemporary art world, including Adam Broomberg and Oliver Chanarin of Paradise Row gallery (also featured in our photography trends report, Obscure Portraits, back in February), Director of the Saatchi Gallery, Rebecca Wilson, and Tabitha Jackson, Commissioning Editor of Arts at Channel 4.

As part of the exhibition, Swedish vodka brand Absolut hosted a talk on Sunday evening, on the theme “collecting emerging art”. In addition, Absolut has commissioned three of the artists to create a piece of work inspired by the azure-colored bottle of their latest limited edition offering, Absolut Originality. The winning artist will receive funding for a studio for one year. Read more about Absolut’s involvement with the art world via the Absolut Art Collection website.

Keep watching the site for our forthcoming, comprehensive coverage from this year’s Frieze Art Fair in London. New Sensations will run until 17th October, 2013, at Victoria House, Bloomsbury Square, London, WC1 – read more about each finalist and their entries for this year’s prize via the website. – Samantha Fox
