This exhibition, drawn from the Ingram Contemporary Talent branch of The Ingram Collection, included established and up and coming artists such as Haroon Mirza, Harrison Pearce, Victoria Sin, Steven Ingman and Tahmina Negmat. Cutting-edge painting, sculpture, film and installation all featured, celebrating the thought-provoking work being produced by young artists in the UK. The gallery was taken over by large-scale artworks across mediums, creating an immersive experience for visitors. 

Since 2016 The Ingram Collection has held an Ingram Prize exhibition for recent art school graduates from across the UK. This exhibition highlighted the work of some recent winners, including Victoria Sin's 'Part Three/Cthulhu Through The Looking Glass', a four minute video exploring femininity, desire and objectification, using speculative fiction as a strategy of queer resistance to imagine a future without existing social infrastructures.

Another winner of the 2017 Ingram Prize, Harrison Pearce's kinetic sculpture and sound installation 'Interview (Prototype)' exploits the correspondences we have with materials, especially their dynamic properties, so that the industrial-looking apparatus behaves in uncanny ways, shifting unpredictably between the mechanical and the bodily.

Haroon Mirza has won international acclaim for his installations exploring sound, light and electricity. 'Canon Remix' (2006) was his first sculptural assemblage to work with sound, and includes speakers, a CD player with recordings from Johann Pachelbel's 'Canon in D' alongside a mist machine.

Other works in the exhibition included large-scale dystopian paintings by Steven Ingman, Corey Whyte's 'Reindeer Totem', a sculpture made using inflatables as moulds to cast polyurethane foam, and Tahmina Negmat's textural mixed media work.
