The history of art collecting
The history of art collecting
Places and Concepts of Art Collecting 

Dr. Zoltán Somhegyi (Art Historian, İzmir University)

In the second lecture of the two-session series on the ways of collecting, the focus is on the places of acquiring artworks and on the concepts of building a collection. Why some prefer buying in a gallery, on an art fair or directly from the artist in the studio? Besides these questions, the possible concepts of a collection are also analysed: potential guidelines that can be helpful for both establishing a new art collection and for giving a characteristic profile to an already existing one. What are the advantages and disadvantages of focusing only on a certain period, on a group of artists, on a specific topic or on one medium?

The lecture is in English, and it is the continuation of the one on 24 May, it can be followed without attending the previous one.
