The Simmons & Simmons Contemporary Art Collection
30 June 2009
Friends have a unique opportunity to be guided through highlights from the contemporary art collection of international law firm Simmons & Simmons by Stuart Evans, recently retired partner of the firm. Stuart began assembling the collection over twenty years ago with the aim of reflecting the energy, commitment and diversity of emerging young British artists such as Tracey Emin RA, Damien Hirst, Gary Hume RA and Michael Landy RA.
Over the years, the collection has become increasingly international, reflecting the firm’s growth overseas. We are delighted that Stuart has offered Friends this private talk about the history of the collection followed by a tour of the art on show in the London offices, which includes works by Hirst, Hume and Emin.
