The inaugural Contemporary Art Society Annual Award for 2009 was presented to Museums Sheffield, The Graves Art Gallery for their proposal to commission a work Líšeň Profile by Czech artist Kateřina Šedá. Museums Sheffield’s current focus for the visual art collections is the broad theme of identity. This is a thread which runs throughout the art collections, from Jonathan Richardson’s 18th century portrait Lady Mary Wortley Montagu to Gwen John’s Corner of the Artist’s Room and Marc Quinn’s Kiss. The long-term intention is to acquire key works which comment on social and political issues. Seeking to engage audiences with concepts such as belonging, a sense of placeand the impact of migration and intercultural exchange.
