Art Collections

“The Contemporary Art Society’s reputation and connections in the contemporary art world seem to me to be unrivalled; in making personal visits to galleries and to artists’ studios the respect in which their consultants are held is very obvious.” – Stephen Barber, Group Managing Director, Pictet & CIE

In our unique role in building public collections for over 100 years, the Contemporary Art Society maintains an unrivalled reputation for being ahead of the curve in identifying significant artists early in their career.

Through close consultation with clients, we draw out collection themes that express the company ethos and provide dynamic ways to engage employees and broader audiences alike.

For existing collections we provide expert advice on:

  • Building knowledge and gaining access to contemporary artists and galleries
  • Rehanging, cataloguing and labelling
  • Framing, insurance evaluations, condition reporting and inventory management

The collections we develop deliver an astute long term investment alongside an aesthetic richness that provides a unique and lasting legacy.
