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.
“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 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
