The Chicago Booth Alumni Club of the UK is pleased to invite you to a curator-led tour of the Deutsche Bank London Art Collection.
For over 30 years, Deutsche Bank has been encouraging and supporting new artistic talent and original ideas. The concept of the Collection, which started in the late 1970's, concentrates on works on paper and photography by international contemporary artists. London is a major hub of the Collection. Deutsche Bank opened its London office in 1973. Forty years later there are 100 conference rooms in the bank's London buildings named after artists from around the globe. In each room a wall plaque provides a short biography of the artist alongside their work. Floors and corridors are also hung with the Collection, making sure art is a continuous part of everyone's thought process. The reception area of the London headquarters features large artworks by Keith Tyson and Damien Hirst as well as major sculptures by Anish Kapoor and Tony Cragg. The tour will be hosted by the curator and include a talk about the history and philosophy of the Collection, a discussion about the main areas of activity and a guided tour.
