April 2016 - August 2016
Drawing Room is delighted to be taking part in Multiple Choices 2016: Editions in support of not-for-profit institutions at Simmons & Simmons.
Curated by litigation associate Michael O’Donoghue and art intern Lucy Cox, Multiple Choices 2016: Editions in support of not-for-profit institutions is the Simmons & Simmons first client-facing selling show. It includes over 80 works by artists in the law firm’s collection, including Howard Hodgkin, Paula Rego, Rachel Whiteread, Paul Morrison (who did the 15 metre wall drawing in our London reception area), Mat Collishaw, Bob and Roberta Smith, Hurvin Anderson, Cornelia Parker and Michael Landy, as well as a host of other established and emerging artists working around the United Kingdom.
All proceeds go directly to the 21 participating institutions, who are as follows: Art Fund, Camden Arts Centre, Centre for Recent Drawing, CGP London, Chisenhale Gallery, Drawing Room, Glasgow International, Hundred Years Gallery, ICA (Institute of Contemporary Arts), Ikon Gallery, Matt’s Gallery, The Multiple Store, The New Art Gallery, Walsall, Serpentine Galleries, South London Gallery, Studio Voltaire, Tate, Transition, Vital Arts, Whitechapel Gallery and Zabludowicz Collection.
The exhibition provides an opportunity for clients, partners and staff to collect some accessibly priced contemporary art in a not-for-profit, no-pressure setting, as well as providing a new audience for these artists and institutions in the thousands of people who pass through the space at the firm’s London office.
Drawing Room has contributed to editions Coscienza coming towards, Coscienza going away from, by Charles Avery and Rules of the Library by Peter Liversidge.
