In Their Own Words: Artists’ Voices from The Ingram Collection ...Read More
The Ingram Collection is a private collection of Modern British and Contemporary art, founded by entrepreneur and philanthropist Chris Ingram. It is now one of the largest privately owned and publicly accessible collections of Modern British and Contemporary art in the UK.
Since its foundation in 2002, the ever-expanding collection now spans over 100 years of British art and includes over 650 artworks. It features work by some of the most important Modern British artists alongside work by young contemporary artists practicing today. A large part of the collection is at present on loan to The Lightbox gallery in Woking, Surrey, where it is featured in a programme of temporary exhibitions and as a permanent display in the public galleries.
The Ingram Collection strives to be available to the broadest possible audiences and continually seeks new opportunities to display iconic pieces in new settings across the UK. As a result, over 400 further works from the collection will be on public display in galleries and museums over the coming year.
A new acquisitions focus for the Collection is artists graduating from major art schools in London.
In addition, the Inside Out collection, comprising 45 works, explores the transformative power of art to help people build their self-confidence and find a purpose in life. Inside Out includes acquisitions of artworks created by prisoners, young offenders and people affected by mental health issues.
