The museum puts together an exhibition of upcoming photographers every five years, trawling through art and photography schools to find unique talent.
This time, the curators returned to the 180 photographers from the first three editions of the show and asked them to display their work, giving an update on what has happened since they first took part in the 'reGeneration' project.
They were also asked to nominate up-and-coming photographers they thought deserved a spot in the show. And they had to suggest an equal number of male and female candidates. On its website, the museum states it hopes this move will help them "comply with current discussions about equal opportunities for men and women in the world of photography".
The exhibition focuses on four issues: social engagement, the environment, gender, and digital dissemination. Social engagement is the largest theme and the photographers examine a wide range of social and political issues, such as the construction of identity, immigration, and consent.
The exhibitionExternal link runs until September 27, 2020.
