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.
