For over 100 years, the Contemporary Art Society has been gifting contemporary artworks to museums and public galleries and has donated more than 8,000 important artworks during this time. The Contemporary Art Society is the leading organisation for identifying emerging talent in the UK and has donated many ‘firsts’ to museums across the country throughout its illustrious history, including the first works by Paul Gauguin, Pablo Picasso and Francis Bacon and, more recently, the first works by Damien Hirst, Elizabeth Price and 2013 Turner Prize nominee Laure Prouvost. The charity’s philanthropic work with regional museums ensures that contemporary art is experienced and enjoyed by as wide an audience as possible, whilst also developing curatorial expertise in museums across the whole country.
