NEU NOW: What Happens Next?
NEU NOW, an initiative of ELIA, existed from 2009-2017 as a transdisciplinary art festival devoted to presenting the work of exceptional emerging artists across Europe.
Each year, students were nominated by institutions, shortlisted by international juries and selected and curated by the co-artistic directors. Both the specific characteristics and the interdisciplinary potential of arts disciplines were showcased through the dynamic presentation of exhibitions, performances, workshops, and artist talks which converged to offer new perspectives.
It started as an itinerant festival presented in Vilnius, Tallinn, Nantes, Porto, Amsterdam and Glasgow and was then brought back to Amsterdam for the remaining three years.
After these nine successful editions, ELIA is excited to present the tenth and final edition to mark the closing of this NEU NOW chapter. This special edition will highlight one artist from each of the nine previous editions and share the story of their artistic career since taking part in the festivals.
At the end of the ELIA Academy 2019, hosted by Stuttgart State Academy of Art and Design and State University of Muisc and the Performing Arts Stuttgart in Germany, an installation showed past and present work from each artist, and a digital publication
