Academy Now 2012 in its first edition, includes 17 artists selected in the past 2 years: they represent varied nationality, from the UK, Europe and beyond. A few have been noticed by influential curators and collectors and are attracting media attention. Hirofumi Isoya has been invited to present his work in Venice during the next Biennale; Atsuko Nakamura´s wood installation was part of New Sensations 2011, London. David Ben White´s Pavillions were selected for New Contemporaries 2011 at the ICA, London and he has also received the Clifford Chance/University of the Arts London Sculpture Award 2012; Nicolas Feldmeyer won the Channel 4 –New Sensations Prize 2012.
