Collect 2023, the leading authority on collectable contemporary craft and design, returned to the stunning Somerset House in London as a hybrid fair last week.
Attracting thousand of visitors the fair showcased museum-quality work from over 400 international living artists represented by almost 40 specialist galleries from across the globe, selected and curated by an expert advisory panel.
Collect is well known for its focus on exclusivity, rich narrative and thoughtful curation, seeking variety and diversity in its content and vision.
“For the past 19 years, Collect has reinforced its pivotal position as the authority for contemporary craft and design. The increasingly diverse range of galleries and artistic voices featured at this year’s fair made the show richer in content and discovery than ever before.” Isobel Dennis, Collect fair director.
On display were pieces made in the last five years, often created especially for the fair from familiar materials (including ceramics, glass, lacquer, furniture, art jewellery, metalwork, textile and fibre, wood and paper) as well as less familiar and non-traditional materials (including resin, plastics and reused, repurposed, recycled materials).
Let’s look at some of them..
Currently, all displayed works are available to view and purchase online via Artsy.net until 12th March 2023.
