Stylist HQ turns art gallery

ll0423.jpg

There's nothing like a bit of modern art to broaden the mind and get the creative juices flowing, and here at the Stylist office we now need barely move from our desks in search of stimulation thanks to the Contemporary Art Society.

The organisation have turned the offices of ShortList Media (Stylist's publisher) into the home of a series of avante garde works by some of Britain's most exciting up-and-coming artists. Until 2 September, we'll be surrounded by thought-provoking and abstract offerings from Britain's most creative minds. Taking a screen break has never been so cultural, nor avoiding work so worthy.

The Contemporary Art Society has been nurturing fresh talent in Britain since 1910, playing a unique role in support of contemporary art collections. A national membership organisation, it brings together individuals and institutions, including a UK-wide network of public collections in regional museums and art galleries. It also runs an initiative aimed at strengthening the context in which works are placed; hence business and art coming together as one in Stylist's workplace - part of the Contemporary Art Society's Rotate programme for workplace galleries.

The exhibition is one of three planned collaborations between the Contemporary Art Society (whose offices are opposite Stylist's on Emerald Street, London) and ShortList Media, and profiles Workplace Gallery from Gateshead. The collection is installed at both offices, and can be viewed by members of the public on weekdays between the hours of 9.30am - 5.30pm. Be sure to give us a wave when you visit!

To whet your art appetitie, take a look at the preview of some of the vibrant artwork on display - along with further information about the artists - below.
