The art is part of five exhibitions, called Going Public: International Art Collectors, at the Cathedral, Millennium Gallery, Graves Gallery, Site Gallery and Sheffield Institute of Arts Gallery, and is designed to begin a debate about ‘the role public galleries and private collections play in bringing great art to everyone’.

Other work will include Micol Assael’s sound installation ‘Your Hidden Sound’ in the lower level of the crypt and in the south aisle will be a tapestry named “Still, Untitled” by Pae White. Other works include ‘Saint Sebastian’, a video installation by Fiona Tan and ‘Christmas `95’, a light installation by Maurizio Cattelan.

The artwork will be on display from 16 September December 12.
