Location: Contemporary Art Tasmania
Ever wondered why collectors acquire the artwork they do or how their collections have grown and evolved? This discussion event will concentrate on the motivations, relationships and responsibilities behind building a contemporary art collection from the perspective of the individual private collector.
DATE: Tuesday 10 November 2015. TIME: 5pm. LOCATION: Contemporary Art Tasmania. A FREE EVENT
Collector Peter Fay recently relocated to Tasmania. He is respected nationally for his passionate support of ‘outsider art’, the long-term relationships he builds with artists and his ‘ahead-of-the-game’ eye for collecting contemporary art.
Julie Gough is better known for being an artist than a collector despite the intertwining nature of both areas of her life. Her art practice is informed by her collecting compulsion and her family’s history and experiences as Tasmanian Aboriginal people.
Renowned for his illustrious and longstanding legal and political career, The Hon. Justice Duncan Kerr, Chev LH bought his first works of art in 1968 and has maintained his support for contemporary artists ever since.
Contemporary Collectors is a precursor to a larger event, Collectors: Conversations on practice scheduled for March 2016.
