PSC values the potential of sculpture and other three-dimensional art practice to create environments that support diverse activities. These include business, health care, education and other organisational and institutional forms as well as a rich domestic life. Our approach to art consultancy springs from a commitment to enabling sculptural practice that is distinguished by its conceptual qualities and craftsmanship. We take pride in securing, producing, curating, installing and maintaining artworks in the public as well as private spheres. Many of these objects, images and installations are sourced from our extensive networks of artists, with our consultancy supporting their advancement by developing an audience for their practice, which is also sustained by income from sales.
Drawing on our experienced team working within the fields of curation, production, research, technical services and fabrication, clients can access our bespoke services for their commission, ensuring the artworks meet their specific needs and scope of requirements, from a new collector seeking to diversify their growing collection to a large-scale commission of public art. Our personal touch ensures an experience that prioritises customer service. This we understand as an extension of the value that sculptural practice can add to our lived experience and capacity to succeed.

As part of the celebrations for their 120th year, Birmingham Hippodrome wanted to commission a temporary, site-specific sculpture for a void space in their four-storey foyer, around which the building’s primary public staircase ascends. Footfall in the foyer exceeds half a million visitors each year. Champions of emerging talent on stage, they wanted to offer this opportunity to an exciting early or mid-career artists with, potentially, limited experience of delivering public sculpture commissions. With our support they were able to take this risk with such a high-profile and technically ambitious project.
PSC were appointed to manage the project from commissioning to delivery. We provided access to our extensive network of leading emerging and mid-career talent whose artistic practice demonstrates an engagement with sculpture and/or work in three dimensions. We helped to define and shape the project brief and managed a national Open Call process. Once the artist was selected, we supported her with the production and engineering of the artwork, before managing the art works installation, including the production of all appropriate risk assessments and method statements. The entire project was delivered in less than six months.
For three years we supported the Deutsche Bank Award for Creative Enterprise Trophy Commission. This involved working with Deutsche Bank to generate a brief and identifying and inviting leading emerging artists from our extensive network to make proposals. Working with Deutsche Bank, each year we then selected the option that best embodied and conveyed their values. Subsequently, we supported the artist through the production, editioning and delivery process to ensure their trophy met and exceeded the expectations of the commission.
