View Simmons & Simmons Art Collection
- Not Applicable when venue selected above |
Art Fund members are guided through highlights from the contemporary art collection of international lawyers Simmons & Simmons by Stuart Evans, recently retired partner of the firm. He began assembling the collection 20 years ago. The policy was to support young artists at the beginning of their careers by acquiring significant pieces of their work. Consequently, the collection reflects the energy, commitment and diversity of emerging talent, and boasts pieces by such British artists as Tracey Emin, Damien Hirst, Gary Hume and Michael Landy. Over the years, the firm’s growth overseas has resulted in the collection becoming increasingly international in flavour. We are privileged that Stuart Evans has offered to give members a personal talk about the history of the collection, followed by a tour of the art on show in the CityPoint offices.
