Norwich Castle Museum & Art Gallery by the Contemporary Art Society
The Eric & Jean Cass Gift
The Contemporary Art Society is delighted to announce one of the most important philanthropic giftings in its 102 year history, which will benefit public collections across the UK for generations to come.
In 2010 The Hepworth Wakefield, Wolverhampton Art Gallery and Film and Video Umbrella were awarded the Contemporary Art Society Annual Award for Museums: commission to collect for their proposal to work with artist Luke Fowler. The resulting work by Fowler, The Poor Stockinger, The Luddite Cropper and the Deluded Followers of Joanna Southcott, will open to the public for the first time at the Hepworth Wakefield on 23 June.
Jointly acquired for the collections of Tullie House (Carlisle), Gallery Oldham, the Harris Museum & Art Gallery (Preston), Touchstones Rochdale and Nottingham City Museums.
