A selection of renowned British contemporary artworks will be on display at the Guernsey Museum and Art Gallery as Deutsche Bank stages its ‘Beyond Sensation – Art of the Last Ten Years’ exhibition, which opens on 3rd September.

The exhibition, which forms part of Deutsche Bank’s 35th anniversary celebrations of operating in the Channel Islands, is made up of works of art from the Bank’s collection. Normally the works in this exhibition can only be seen by arranging to visit Deutsche Bank’s offices in London, where art is displayed to make the office space a more stimulating working environment and to encourage the staff to engage with the latest ideas and the community.

Beyond Sensation is a progression from the Sensation exhibition at the Royal Academy of London in 1997. Sensation was a showcase of Charles Saatchi’s collection, featuring works by the Young British Artists (YBA) movement. It acted as a celebration of Damien Hirst’s success in making and marketing new art in a fresh way and provoked a degree of controversy.

Beyond Sensation, a smaller show, aims to acknowledge the impact of the most famous contemporary exhibition of the last ten years and to demonstrate that there is life beyond it.

In total there will be 25 works on display, covering a range of cutting edge contemporary artistic thought. Of particular note are artists Tracey Emin, Rachel Whiteread, Damien Hirst, Simon Patterson, Marc Quinn and Channel Island artist Jason Martin.

Andreas Tautscher, Chief Country Officer, Deutsche Bank Guernsey, said:

“It is incredibly exciting that we are able to bring such renowned pieces of contemporary art to the Channel Islands, and it is fitting that we should do this in the year of our 35th anniversary in the islands. Deutsche Bank promotes young international artists by showing their works of art in the Bank’s offices, including those in Guernsey and Jersey.
