Generation 10

Generation 10

There is considerable interest in the new generation of young British painters, Candlestar was delighted to present Generation 10, an exhibition of work by ten young artists who recently graduated from three of the UK’s leading art colleges – Camberwell, Chelsea and Wimbledon. David Hockney, Chris Ofili, Maggi Hambling, Anish Kapoor, Steve McQueen, Conrad Shawcross, Gavin Turk and Gillian Wearing are just a few of the many internationally acclaimed artists to have graduated from these Colleges.

Generation 10 was the third exhibition that Candlestar developed in partnership with the Hyatt Regency – The Churchill and the first to feature the work of artists who have newly arrived on the art scene. The ten artists that were included in the exhibition were: Jenny Baldock, Sophie Bevan, Benjamin Bridges, Lenka Drga, Chris Golle, Ann-Marie James, Jack Jones, Michael O’Reilly, Matthew Priest, Ji Yoon Ryu.
