Founded in 1910, The Contemporary Art Society exists to further the understanding and appreciation of contemporary art and to develop public collections and collectors in the UK. Over the last 100 years, the Society has donated over 8,000 unique and distinctive artworks to institutions in Britain.
Leicester is delighted to join the centenary celebrations with a special exhibition of selected works gifted by the society. Donated works range from Mark Gertlerís oil painting 'The Fruit Sorters', one of the earliest gifts made in 1924, to Peter Doigís stunning 'Concrete Cabin', presented in 1996 and recently shown in the artistís major retrospective at Tate Britain in 2008-09.
