Mark Hix's Recipe for Collecting

March 2018: This Spring, Sotheby’s is teaming up with celebrated chef, food writer and restaurateur Mark Hix to curate a sale of contemporary art in London, revealing an exquisite taste which extends far beyond the confines of the kitchen.

Not only is Mark famous for his contribution to British culinary culture, he is central to the realm of contemporary British art, having lived and worked in Shoreditch in the 1990s alongside the likes of Tracey Emin, Carl Freedman, Bob & Roberta Smith and Damien Hirst - with whom he joined forces in 2016 to open ‘Pharmacy 2’ at Newport Street Gallery, Vauxhall. Today, Mark has built an extensive personal collection, transforming the interiors of his restaurants and home with flatworks, sculpture and suspended mobiles, commissioning work from his many emerging and established artist friends.

Now, Mark has hand-picked a selection of his favourite works from artists including Banksy, Michael Craig-Martin and Harland Miller, for Sotheby’s ‘Contemporary Curated’ sale in London. The sale offers collectors the opportunity to acquire accessibly priced works by leading and lesser-known artists, with estimates starting at just £200. As a friend and patron to many artists himself, Mark is perfectly placed to help us curate. Journalists are very welcome to join us at Sotheby’s for a private view and press breakfast with Mark on Friday 6th April. Further details will be announced in due course.
