LEAP! (2012)

Held at the wonderful and enigmatic Farmiloe Building, 34 St John Street, London EC1M 4BE, LEAP! was an evening of marvels, eccentricities and illusions. Chaired once again by one of our Trustees, Sarah Elson, with the generous support of a committee of major collectors and philanthropists, the event offered guests the opportunity to purchase works newly commissioned along the theme for sale on the night.

The Contemporary Art Society is extremely grateful to Boucheron as lead sponsor for LEAP! and to Arts Council England and the Sfumato Foundation for their investment in our work.
