Anya Hindmarch, curator
Following the inaugural London sale earlier this year, the Sotheby’s Contemporary Curated exhibition and sale will return to the big smoke on the 20th September in collaboration with guest curator and leading British designer Anya Hindmarch.
‘What attracted me mostly to Contemporary Curated was that you get to work so closely to the actual art, and thats a pretty big honour frankly, for example the Keith Haring which is just so exciting, such a beautiful piece to really spend time looking at, and seeing all the energy and joy of that picture. Its very unapologetic’
As the brains behind the Anya Hindmarch accessories brand famed for it’s innovative shows (which have featured models floating weightlessly over the catwalk, a 120-strong male choir, a giant mirrored kaleidoscopic set and models walking within an artful, moving Rubik’s cube) and a passionate contemporary art collector herself, we can expect a dynamic and innovative selection of pieces from the witty designer.
With works from Andreas Gursky and Tracey Emin - whose Selfie 1 features in Hindmarch’s Top Pick’s - Kieth Harding, Eddie Peake, Marc Quinn, and Ai Wei Wei, Hindmarch hopes to create a fresh perspective with her personal edit. You can sneak a peek at the rest of Hindmarch’s Top Ten Pick’s here.
‘What’s not to love about Tracey? She’s fantastic, and there’s a spirit about this picture. I like that it’s called Selfie 1, but it's a drawing.’ Anya Hindmarch
