HS Projects have extensive public art experience, having delivered numerous site specific commissions across the UK raising the quality of public life and the perception of public art since 1995. We always aim to achieve the best possible outcome for our clients.
We specialise in all aspects of public art commissions, from strategy and brief to artist selection, detail design, supporting planning applications, fabrication and installation. We provide a full commissioning service, always working to the highest standards, and so are able to help our clients create distinctive places. Our clients include property developers, local authorities, architects, and designers.
HS Projects are leading experts in community outreach through creative projects. We take pride in having delivered over 40 successful projects that engage with different community groups including primary and secondary schools, homeless charities, mental health organisations, residents associations, refugee/immigrant community groups, ex servicemen & women, women’s groups, youth organisations and H.M. Prisons.
Our strength is building links between our clients and the communities through projects that engage their audiences, encourage participation and increase knowledge, understanding and enjoyment of contemporary art for all stakeholders. We see the interaction between artists and community groups as an integral aspect of each project and we work with an international range of artists from those with an established reputation to those at the beginning of promising careers.
Since the early ‘90s, HS Projects have been curating exhibitions and have gained a reputation showcasing the work of emerging artists next to internationally acclaimed artists. We have long standing relationships with our clients, with a number of annual exhibition programmes running for 10-15 years. Each time we aim to deliver the highest quality result providing world class contemporary art exhibitions that enrich our clients’ environment and experience, and support their business objectives.
HS Projects work with a number of corporate and private art collections specialising in valuations, collection audits, cataloguing, artistic advice, sales and acquisitions.
We are always mindful of each client’s specific needs and vision for their collection and our willingness to search for undiscovered talent, allows us to cater to this vision in original and unexpected ways for our clients. We offer expert advice on acquisitions, re-structuring and re-evaluating existing collections, conservation, insurance, documentation, presentation, framing and shipping.
