Charles Russell Speechlys supports Somerset House through new corporate partnership

Charles Russell Speechlys is delighted to announce that it has become a major corporate partner of Somerset House, supporting the Terrace Room exhibitions series.

James Carter, Charles Russell Speechlys’ managing partner, said:

“Somerset House is an iconic London landmark and leading centre for contemporary culture and we are delighted to support them through this long term partnership which will see us sponsor a series of free public exhibitions in the Terrace Rooms. These exhibitions will provide opportunities for a diverse group of exhibitors to showcase their talents and will further open up the world of art and culture to a varied audience, from the seasoned art lover to the first time visitor.”

The Charles Russell Speechlys Terrace Room Series profiles the work of contemporary artists in one of the most accessible spaces at Somerset House, bringing the public into contact with a diverse and engaging range of creative thinkers.

The series continues with Kaleidoscope: Immigration and Modern Britaina new photography exhibition exploring identity and immigration in modern Britain.

Featuring stills and moving image, Kaleidoscope showcases the works of ten photographers born or based in Britain, many with family origins abroad including Hong Kong, India, Jamaica and Russia, and explores what it means and how it feels to live as an immigrant, or a descendent of immigrants, in Britain today. Co-curated by writer, Ekow Eshun and Creative Director, Darrell Vydelingum the exhibition forms a celebration of immigration in everyday life.

Somerset House and Charles Russell Speechlys share a commitment to collaborative working practices and through this series are committed to sharing skills, knowledge and experience as part of a mutually-beneficial partnership for their clients, contacts and colleagues.

Suzanne Marriott, partner at Charles Russell Speechlys is leading on the relationship with Somerset House.
