Celebrating its 75th anniversary year, the Arts Council Collection is an exhibition featuring highlights from its recent contemporary art acquisitions, including a number of works presented publicly for the first time.

This free exhibition — the most extensive display of Arts Council Collection acquisitions to date — highlights a diverse selection of contemporary art, featuring 18 artists.

From multi-part installations to painting and moving image, the works displayed joined the Collection in 2019–2021 and represent some of the best and most ambitious modern and contemporary British art.

Right About Now will bring 33 works together across two floors of No.9 Cork Street. Among the artworks on display, select highlights include Adam Farah’s I AM FREE (FREE AM I MIX), 2018. Displayed on the ground floor of the gallery, the work is a wall-sized poster featuring the artist wearing a t-shirt custom-printed with lyrics from the song ‘I Am Free’ by Mariah Carey. It represents an important influence in the artist’s life. The photograph has been digitally manipulated to express the desire to feel and be free enough to fly, while also being an ode to the power and life force of friendships.
