ARTfutures 2008 is here!

Artfutures is a unique and un-missable event in the contemporary arts calendar. Each year, the Contemporary Art Society handpicks work by approximately 100 artists to form an exhibition of work for sale. Selected through a combination of exhaustive research including studio visits, ARTfutures offers a truly unrivalled opportunity to buy contemporary art, selected by the UK’s leading non-profit agency for independent advice on contemporary collecting.

The exhibition offers a snapshot of contemporary practice – showing work by artists who have recently graduated to those who have substantial reputations – and embracing the full spectrum of media. Independent curator Jeni Walwin, and artist Nicky Hirst lead the selection this year, inviting a number of distinguished artists to nominate other artists and to contribute work themselves has extended the boundaries of the show.

With prices ranging from 500 to 5000 pounds, approximately 100 artists will contribute around 1000 works, all created in the last two years. ARTfutures is therefore ideal for those in the market for contemporary art and the selectors, curators and specialists from the Contemporary Art Society will be on hand at all times for information and expert advice. ARTfutures will be held at Bloomberg SPACE, London EC2.

ARTfutures relies upon the generosity of artists and support of dealers, who allow the Contemporary Art Society to take commission on sales, which generates funds for our charitable work, including purchasing contemporary art to gift to public collections across the UK. In doing so, we ensure contemporary art is accessible to the most diverse audience nationally and that the artists of our own times are represented in public collections, for the pleasure and inspiration of audiences tomorrow.
