Follow, share and connect through art
Yes we do. The Collection continues to grow, capturing the talent and interests of each generation. We collect works by artists who are British or have a connection to Britain, and place this art in significant locations; celebrating and showcasing the UK’s commitment to culture in the context of diplomacy.
While the Collection works alongside government, it retains a curatorial independence in its acquisitions and displays of art. Works are acquired by the Collection curators, with input from an Advisory Committee comprising of directors of national art institutions in the UK, and independent arts professionals.
Find out where you can see works from the Collection that are currently out on loan to public museums.
The role of the Advisory Committee is to approve the acquisition and commission of works of art and to advise on the policy and stewardship of the Collection. See who the current members are.
The Government Art Collection is committed to working with different partners to create opportunities to support and promote the Collection, finding new ways to reach wider audiences.
