Photography in Contemporary Art - How to Collect Art #5
Mon, March 27, 2017, 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM BST
Ever since its invention in the early 19th century, photography has beguiled viewers, but as technology, ease, availability to all have evolved, so have artists’ uses of the medium.
This fifth part of our new series, 'How to Collect Art', hosted by Pernilla Holmes, features Clare Grafik (The Photographers' Gallery) and Matthew Stephenson. The talks will highlight contemporary artists who use photography in their practice – offering an overview of key movements and will look closely at the practicalities of collecting photography, from conservation issues to understanding editions, reprints and more.
Tickets include complimentary drinks and entry to Frieze London 2017.
