ARTfutures is a Contemporary Art Society project.
A unique and un-missable event in the contemporary art calendar, each
year, the Contemporary Art Society handpicks work by approximately
100 artists to form an exhibition of work for sale. Selected through
a combination of exhaustive research including studio visits, ARTfutures
offers a truly unrivalled opportunity to buy contemporary art, selected
by the UK’s leading non-profit agency for independent advice
on contemporary collecting.
With prices ranging from £500 to £5000, approximately 100 artists will contribute around 1000 works, all created in the last two years. ARTfutures is therefore ideal for those in the market for contemporary art. The selectors, curators and specialists from the Contemporary Art Society will be on hand at all times for information and expert advice.

“We need artists that expose and exploit
the mechanisms of wonder.”
– Nicky Hirst 2007, artist and ARTfutures 2008 co-curator
“I have huge confidence in the Contemporary
Art Society and their independent curators. Over the years they
have established a reputation for finding artists in early career.
ARTfutures is not just good for artists, it is essential viewing
for new collectors of contemporary art.”
– Cornelia Parker
“Every year I find at least one work
I really love at ARTfutures. I always walk away with something
that gives me endless pleasure. I like the fact that the exhibition
is curated and independent, so you're not being pressurised to
buy the Next Big Thing. It is about the art, not about big names.
The people who show you around listen to what you say and find
art that really appeals to you.”
– Tony Adams, former footballer
