Collect 2019 – We collected some of the best shots of furniture, installations and exhibitions from Collect2019 – The International Art Fair for Modern Craft and Design at the Saatchi Gallery in London. On show CNC crafted chairs, bejeweled hejabs and a ‘swarm’ of 100 elephant sculptures.
Founded by the UK Crafts Council, Collect is the only gallery-presented art fair dedicated to modern craft and design. The fair provides an opportunity to discover and invest in exceptional work produced in the last five years by living artists, much of which is made exclusively for the Fair.
For the 15th edition, UK and international galleries, many of which are exhibiting for the first time such as Todd Merrill (USA) and the China Design Centre (UK), will present globally celebrated artists from over 30 countries. With art, design and craft increasingly informing and fusing with each other, Collect has witnessed many success stories over the years, including names that are now in the spotlight and collected by private individuals and leading institutions.
From 28 February to 3 March 2019 Collect will occupy the whole of the Saatchi Gallery for four days with 40 galleries, selected by an independent panel of experts, selling the work of over 400 artists. Alongside the galleries, Collect Open returns providing a platform for 15 individual artists to show ambitious and conceptual craft-led installations.
