This October, Sotheby’s is delighted to announce the inauguration of S|2 London, a new and permanent gallery devoted to selling exhibitions of Contemporary Art in St. George Street, Mayfair. Housed in a David Kohn Architects-designed space, S|2 London will organise five exhibitions per year, curated by Sotheby’s specialists and guest curators. Opening this programme is Joseph Beuys Revealed, an exhibition of twelve early works on paper and an important sculpture from a single owner collection. Reuniting pieces from between 1947 and 1966, the period when Beuys established his international reputation, Joseph Beuys Revealed shows the foundational importance of drawing to his practice. A cohesive display of his defining subjects: animals, landscapes and the female figure, this exhibition manifests the complex philosophies underpinning the oeuvre of a towering figure in 20th-century art.
S|2 is Sotheby’s Contemporary art gallery, offering year-round exhibition programming and bespoke private sales.
With dedicated gallery space in New York, London and Hong Kong, S|2 presents selling exhibitions exploring the work of celebrated artists, such as Jean-Michel Basquiat, Keith Haring, Yayoi Kusama, and Claude and François-Xavier Lalanne, as well as shows curated by influential art world figures like Vito Schnabel.
In addition to gallery programming, the S|2 team facilitates private acquisitions and sales around the world. Learn more at www.sothebys.com/S2.
