Contemporary Art Society
Founded in 1910, the Contemporary Art Society exists to encourage the appreciation and understanding of contemporary art and to develop public collections and collectors in the UK. The Society is a national membership organisation, including contemporary art enthusiasts and collectors, curators and artists, commercial galleries and a nationwide network of regional museums and art galleries.
For 100 years, the organisation has acted as a catalyst in the contemporary visual arts, developing audiences, artists, curators, collectors and collections alike. The Society played a unique and visionary role, donating more than 8,000 works to institutions in Britain, where they are enjoyed by audiences of tens of millions.
