Therme Art is a proud partner of Somerset House and a key supporter of their 24/7 Autumn Exhibition.

Somerset House is London’s working arts centre and home to the UK’s largest creative community. Built on historic foundations, it is situated in the very heart of London. Dedicated to backing progress, championing openness, nurturing creativity and empowering ideas, its cultural program is ambitious in scope. Somerset House insists on relevance, but isn’t afraid of irreverence, and is as keen on entertainment as enrichment.

Somerset House embraces the biggest issues of our times and is committed to oxygenating new work by emerging artists. Where else can you spend an hour ice-skating while listening to a specially commissioned sound piece by a cutting-edge artist? It is this creative tension––the way it harnesses its heritage, puts the too-often overlooked on their central stage and uses its neo-classical backdrop to showcase ground-breaking contemporary culture ––that inspires its program. Old and new, history and disruption, art and entertainment, high-tech and homemade, combined with the fact that it is home to a constantly shape-shifting working creative community: this is their point of difference. It is what Somerset House is proud of. And it is what makes the experience of visiting or working in Somerset House inspiring and energizing, urgent and exciting.
