An 'instant art collection' composed of 18 small scale artworks by contemporary artists including Peter Blake, Gavin Turk and Rachel Whiteread.

The ‘Selection Box’ presents a fascinating cross-section of contemporary printmaking and a diverse selection of work from watercolours, lino cuts, wood block and silkscreen prints, to gold plated sculptures and cast resin by artists including Fiona Banner, Peter Blake, Gavin Turk, Michael Landy, Rachel Howard, Clare Woods, and Simon Periton. Curator Jane Simpson said ‘My idea for the ‘Selection Box’ was to create something that focused on the handmade and on smaller pieces. I wanted it to have something for everyone, like a good box of chocolates.’

The Selection Box was organised by Galerie Simpson, an independent space on the High Street of Swansea, Wales and generously donated through the Golder – Thompson Gift.
