Global insurer Hiscox have been collecting modern and contemporary art for over 50 years. The collection comprises 1000 works by renowned artists, including Grayson Perry, Tacita Dean and Peter Doig. With no single work ever in storage, this living collection is displayed across the company’s 35 global offices – on the walls of common areas and meeting rooms, enlivening the working environment with art that provokes thought or sparks creativity.

British painter Gary Hume (b.1962, Tenterden, UK) and Berlin-based Venezualan artist Sol Calero (b.1982, Caracas, Venezuela) each bring new perspectives to the Hiscox Collection in their personal selection of works at Whitechapel Gallery. For Hume, making and viewing art are a means of escape. Hume invites us to escape the every day and to find new joys and sorrows in the myriad worlds imagined for us by the artists he has selected. Sol Calero’s selection will launch in January 2021.

Curated by Laura Smith, Curator, Whitechapel Gallery with Grace Storey, Assistant Curator, Whitechapel Gallery.

Accompanied by a fully-illustrated catalogue.
