 Anya Hindmarch to guest-curate an auction of Contemporary Art

“I think what really drives a great art collector is passion, you’ve got to love it and the impulse has got to be authentic. I know when I see a beautiful piece or something that affects me I can’t not have it. I love the way Contemporary Curated brings together a new audience and allows people to look at a very personal edit – It’s an amazing opportunity to be able to pick what you really love and really respond to. ” – ANYA HINDMARCH

This autumn, Sotheby’s is opening up its galleries to Anya Hindmarch, inviting the leading fashion accessories designer to guest-curate an auction of Contemporary Art in London. A passionate advocate of British design and arts, Anya’s take will add a fresh and innovative perspective to the exhibition, which will run from 16–19 September to coincide with London Fashion Week.

A trustee of both the Royal Academy of Arts and the Design Museum, Anya’s passion for the arts runs through all that she does, from outstanding craftsmanship to witty and creative interpretations of Pop Art. Handpicking the works that inspire her as both a designer and art-collector, she presents a range of artworks by leading Contemporary artists including Keith Haring, Andreas Gursky, Tracy Emin and Yayoi Kusama.

ANDREAS GURSKY Gardasee, 1986-93 Estimate £40,000–60,000 

“This photograph makes you really look twice – it’s quite surreal and deceptive which really draws you in – the more you look the more you become captivated by the artist’s investigations into photography.” - Anya Hindmarch
