A Novel Approach to Collecting

What does it take to start or build a collection of contemporary art? What are the different approaches you can take? Why is it so rewarding?

Join us as gallerist Seva Frangos, private collector Frederic Flipo, and Murdoch University Art Collection curator Mark Stewart discuss what, how, and why they collect.

This is sure to be an insightful evening for anyone interested in the idea and history of collecting, or thinking of starting a collection of their own, so don't miss out!

Tuesday 4 August, 6pm
Tickets $20, refreshments included
