Collect2020 – Organised by the Crafts Council at Somerset House in London, the 16th edition of Collect has brought together international galleries from across the globe, each curating their own displays to sell work made in the last five years by the world’s leading contemporary artists and designers.
With artists represented from over 25 nations from Sweden to Uganda to Japan, the breadth of exceptional work on show will range from ceramics, glass, metal, wood and textiles to makers working in non-traditional materials with experimental techniques.
Through the years Collect has been instrumental to defining and growing the market for contemporary craft. “The appetite for contemporary craft continues to increase as seen by the number of new galleries emerging.” Says Collect Fair Director Isobel Dennis.
Bound by the terms of the fair, all participating galleries commit to most of their stand showing works made in the last five years. All galleries are encouraged to reveal new works for Collect and additionally returning galleries are encouraged to introduce new artists.
