Contemporary Art Society’s Latest Consultancy Projects

8 December 2011 By

Olympic Park
Our two major public art commissions on the Olympic Park in east London are nearing completion. We have been working with the Olympic Development Agency (ODA) on the project since 2010 when artists Clare Woods and DJ Simpson were appointed to create artworks for two buildings that sit on the border of the park.

The resulting commissions are currently being installed on site and will be complete late in December. Check our website early next year to be one of the first to see the official press release and images of the completed works.

London School of Economics
Artlyst website has nominated our commission for the London School of Economics (LSE) in their list of Top Ten Public Contemporary Artworks in London. The commission, Square the Block by Richard Wilson is not only an emblem of LSE’s forward thinking approach to education but it has also become a landmark in central London.

For more information on the Square the Block and the accompanying commission Elenchus Aporia by Joy Gerrard for the interior of the building click here.

Three new collections for Aspen have been curated by the Contemporary Art Society for offices in Zurich, San Francisco and New Jersey. Featuring a mix of established and emerging artists, the collections showcase a range of contemporary art practice in painting, photography and new media.

Aspen’s corporate collection provides a creative perspective on the world. Held in offices across the globe, in each country the collection represents work from artists living and working in the region. In this way Aspen creates sustainable connections to the local arts ecology – and reflects the unique character of place within the office environment.

Head of Consultancy Fabienne Nicholas took part in Deloitte’s Art and Finance conference in Miami in early December 2011 exploring the benefits of corporate collections. A podcast of the conference will be available on our website early next year.
