6 October 2014
The House of St Barnabas in the heart of Soho, London announce a new selection of contemporary art works to go on show at the grade I listed house this Autumn. Launching with a special private event on Monday 6 October (invitation only), The Collective will bring together works by world-class contemporary artists, including Kendell Geers' rust on paper drawings titled 'Age of Iron' that are to go on display in the Silk Room.

The works are available for sale as part of its evolving contemporary art programme and collection `The Collective'. The Collective at the club at The House of St Barnabas showcases the work of emerging and established artists in a programme of visual art conceived to inspire and uplift the members and staff of this ground-breaking club, which is not-for-profit and supports a charitable employment academy which helps those who have experienced homelessness back into long-term work.

In a spirit of collaboration and connectivity, artists, galleries and curators permanently donate or loan works to the club for a period of four months. The Collective encapsulates the essence of The House of St Barnabas, in its ethos of collaboration and its commitment to nurturing talent. Other artists to participate are John Baldessari, Gary Hume, Frank Ackermann, Kris Martin, Kenneth Anger and Harland Miller.

The new artworks are all for sale and a percentage of all art sales are donated to the charity towards its work. Public tours of The House of St Barnabas art collection take place on the first Friday of every month at 1pm. Places must be booked in advance or by appointment.

The House of St Barnabas' permanent art collection includes donations from celebrated artists such as Martin Creed, Jake and Dinos Chapman and Tracey Emin, as well as founding member Rankin, and artists Hew Locke, Jeremy Deller, Mark Titchner, Chris Levine and gallery artist Yinka Shonibare MBE.
