Collect: the new art fair for contemporary objects, presented by the Crafts Council.
This exhibition represents the inaugural year of Collect, the first UK art fair that is specifically and solely for contemporary decorative art and applied arts. The works on show come from 41 galleries, dealers, and artist groups from the UK, Europe, Australia, the US, and the Far East. These diverse works will range from sculptural objects in glass, ceramic, wood, and metalwork to textile installations, art, jewellery, and furniture. In addition, nine of Britain’s most prominent artists have created special installations to show new work, most of which will be seen for the first time.
