Have you ever thought about starting your own art collection? Not sure where to begin?
With such a breadth of galleries, specializing in a vast number of artists, mediums and artistic concerns, making a start in the world of collecting can seem daunting. In this new Frieze Academy event, we want to offer a new generation of collectors guidance on starting or growing their own collections.
During this lively evening session, some of the world’s most authoritative art advisors will give straightforward, honest insight on topics including current artists to watch, and personal recommendations on where and how to buy art. With drinks included the evening is also a chance to meet the speakers and mingle with fellow attendees.
If you’re wondering how to start or expand your own contemporary art collection, this is an opportunity to ask an expert and meet fellow aficionados.
On 26 September, Frieze Academy presents a panel of acclaimed art advisors chaired by Pernilla Holmes. Places are limited to 40 and includes:
• Exclusive access to the world’s top art advisors
