New contemporaries on view at Royal Scottish Academy

RSA New Contemporaries, a major annual platform for some of Scotland’s best emerging artists and architects, is currently being held.

This year the exhibition features 62 artists and architects selected from the 2019 degree shows.

Now in its 12th year, RSA New Contemporaries provides a unique opportunity to view a variety of important current developments in Scottish art under one roof.

With many of the artworks available for purchase at affordable prices, the exhibition is a brilliant chance to find new additions for your art collection. Works are available to purchase with Own Art, allowing you to buy the art you love in 10 interest-free monthly instalments.
