"I was delighted to have Dickson Russell on board to manage the art component of the IALS Transformation refurbishment project. Their proposal to choose modern works to be in keeping with the architecture and spirit of the Denys Lasdun building really was the right one, as they fit very well and greatly add to the environment for staff and users. Throughout the project, which was extended due to Covid-19, Dickson Russell provided valuable expertise, research and writing skills, practical advice, along with access to excellent third-party resources. I very much enjoyed working with Rachel and Emma and the Director of IALS is very happy with the outcome."

"Rachel and Emma's help was invaluable. They encouraged us to have all our existing art collection reframed, advising that otherwise it would feel tired and dated in our new offices - and they were right. They carefully arranged the rehang, displaying works in groups and series, as well as individually, to create a variety of 'looks' in different spaces. The finished result was thoughtful and made it feel like a new collection, one that not only clients noticed and talked about, but our team did as well. We were also grateful for the introduction to Ptolemy Mann who created a bespoke textile installation for our main space; following the commissioning process was an added bonus. Our office looks great!"
