Mr. Stock is closely involved with putting together the bi-annual London Evening Sales, as well contributing to those in New York. Since 2007, he has co-curated Beyond Limits, the popular annual-selling exhibition of modern and contemporary sculpture held in the historic grounds of Chatsworth House in Derbyshire.
