Collect, the international art fair for contemporary craft and design, took place on Artsy.net from 26 February to 24 March 2021.
In 2021, the 17th edition of the fair, Collect featured 32 international galleries representing 400 artists from 35 nations, spanning from the UK to Senegal, Japan to the USA. Over 1,300 artworks were available to purchase in this year’s digital edition, with Collect being one of the most visited fairs on Artsy.net – proof of the growing appetite for contemporary craft. For 2022, Collect plans to return to London’s Somerset House in late February.
Artworks spanned many craft disciplines including ceramics, glass, textiles and fibre, wood and paper, lacquer, jewellery, precious metalwork through to works using non-traditional materials including resin and bone. Profiles of some of the exciting new artists to the Fair are available to read online.
Almost 6,000 people attended 12 virtual events during the Fair and these are all now available to watch on YouTube. Listen to leading craft artists including Magdalene Odundo DBE, Edmund de Waal, LOEWE FOUNDATION Craft Prize finalists including Takeshi Yasuda, Brookfield Properties Crafts Council Collections Award winner Anna Ray and an exploration of craft and interior design with Cox London and Homes & Garden.
Thank you to our sponsors LOEWE FOUNDATION, Brookfield Properties and Cox London for their continued commitment to Collect.
Collect will return in 2022 and we will be welcoming applications from galleries shortly.
