International Art Fair for Modern Craft and Design 

27 February - 1 March, 2020

Collect is the only gallery-presented art fair dedicated to modern craft and design. 

Over 40 galleries from the UK and around the world sell work made in the last five years by the leading craft artists working today.

Collect shows the exceptional skill and intellectual rigour behind modern craft – from works in ceramics, glass, metal, wood and textiles to makers working in non-traditional materials with experimental techniques. 

In addition to the main fair Collect Open presents new ambitious craft installations by individual artists and collectives and a lively talks programme explores contemporary craft with leading voices from the worlds of craft, design, architecture, fashion and art.

Collect is moving to Somerset House

For 2020 the fair is excited to be taking over a large number of beautiful rooms at Somerset House, presenting a new environment for Collect exhibitors to contextualise and curate. At Somerset House, Collect will occupy the striking galleries that surround the Edmond J. Safra Fountain Court.
