Great Works


The CAS is launching a major new scheme that aims to address the absence in regional museums and galleries across the UK of works by British artists who have established international reputations over the last 20 years.

Thanks to the generosity of the Sfumato Foundation, the new Great Works award will be established which will purchase one major work a year by a leading British artist for a regional museum or gallery. The 70 museums across the UK that make up the CAS’s Museum Membership will be eligible to apply for the award, the majority of which are outside London.

Contemporary Art Society Museum Members considering applying to the scheme are strongly advised to arrange to speak personally with a member of the curatorial staff at the CAS before submitting an expression of interest.  More detailed application guidelines will be available at this point.

Museum Members are invited to submit their applications by Friday 26th February 2016.
