COLLECT, the leading international art fair for contemporary objects, returns to the Saatchi Gallery in 2015 from 8-11 May 2015
This year 35 galleries from across Europe, Asia and North America will represent the finest examples of work by over 400 of the world’s leading makers.
Alongside returning galleries including Adrian Sassoon, Galleri Format, Sarah Myerscough Gallery, Yufuku Gallery, new galleries Art-Cart, Fatto ad Arte Gallery, Widell Projects and Micheko Gallery make their debut. See all the galleries.
Now in its fourth year the second floor space showcasing ambitious installation work from individuals and collectives is this year called COLLECT Open. This year it will present eight ambitious installations by fourteen artists and four design historians.
The latest Crafts Council touring exhibition I AM HERE will be previewed giving a tantalising taster of a show focusing on author jewellery from 1970s to present day, including work by Caroline Broadhead, Elizabeth Callinicos, Jack Cunningham , Susanna Heron and Hans Stofer.
Major British makers will also have individual showcases and presentations at the fair: Tord Boontje will be presenting 11 chairs he has designed over the last ten years, Caroline Broadhead will be presenting a performance piece Sighted working with Angela Woodhouse, and in the year she turns 80 Ann Sutton will be presenting new works.
If that wasn’t enough – there will also be a programme of talks including the popular on-stand booth talks where you can hear the world’s best makers talking about their work.
Tickets are now on sale with an advance ticket price of just £12.
