Collect 2022 will take place at Somerset House, London from February 25-27 2022 (previews 23-24 February). Galleries may now apply to exhibit at next years Fair.
Now in its 18th year, Collect has been instrumental in defining and growing the marketplace for international collectable craft.
Presented by the Crafts Council, the leading authority on craft in the UK, Collect is passionate about supporting specialist galleries, worldwide, who bring to the Fair a careful selection of their artists working with a broad range of materials.
Collect requires galleries to show at least 80% of works made in the last five years by living artists and designers. Galleries are asked to propose a curatorial rationale for their stand and an indication of the works that will be shown.
Collect’s focus is on the truly contemporary and as such encourages galleries to commission new bodies of work especially for the Fair. To maximise on commercial success for exhibitors, Collect is strategically positioned at the start of the international cultural calendar.
Every year it attracts a high-net-worth purchasing audience of art consultants, interiors specialists, collectors, museum curators, design practitioners and a culturally educated wider public.
