When Pictet moved into their London headquarters over 3 floors of a newly-built Norman Foster building, the Contemporary Art Society was appointed to develop a museum quality collection.
Working closely with Pictet's CEO, Contemporary Art Society Consultancy articulate the collection themes and purchasing works. Contemporary Art Society Consultancy manages all aspects of the collection including the publication of the collection catalogue and guided tours for staff and clients.
The collection reflects the dynamism and energy of the place in which we find ourselves, including the urban versus the rural, environmental issues, and within this the need for contemplative, meditative space. The works acquired or commissioned reflect and complement the strong minimal aesthetic established by the Norman Foster building.
