Subject Matter February Talks: 1- Becoming an Art Collector



Let this be your New Year’s resolution – to start buying art! You don’t have to be rich to be an art collector, you just need passion and a curious spirit.

The more we buy art, the more artists can make a living. More young talents will want to become artists in the future and the more art will become part of our everyday life, which can only be a good thing! In this first talk in the ‘Becoming’ series we will discuss how to buy art, breaking down the barriers, typical fears, steps, to-do’s, challenges and questions to ask yourself.

We are partnering with the Royal College of Art and Sedition to present Becoming, an exhibition showcasing new work by selected artists from the RCA Schools of Fine Art and Communication. This series of talks will run in parallel to the exhibition that will focus on developments in the art-market and inspire the buyers and collectors of the future.
