During the last 100 years, the Contemporary Art Society has gifted over 8,000 works to public collections across the UK and Commonwealth countries. The schemes we have offered to acquire and gift works have changed over the years, depending on funds available and the priorities of the time.
Testing Media was a joint project between The Contemporary Art Society and the Art Fund, designed to support the acquisition of significant contemporary works presenting particular challenges around display and conservation.
