Arts Council Collection

Celebrating 75 years of Arts Council Collection supporting artists 

Arts Council Collection presented its latest acquisitions reflecting the breadth of British art and artists working in the UK today. The Collection supports and promotes artists by buying their work at an early or critical stage in their career, making it available for loan to the nation’s museums and public institutions including schools, universities, hospitals and charitable associations. Artists featured in the exhibition included Abigail Reynolds, Miranda Forrester, Shezad Dalwood, Rosa-Johan Uddoh, Oliver Beer, Liv Preston, Adam Farah. Artists on national tour will include: Shawanda Corbett and Lindsay Mendick  in Human conditions of clay, Chapter, Cardiff; and Andrew Pierre-Hart and Rachel Jones in Mixing It Up: Painting Today at the Hayward Gallery, London.
