Young Collector’s Salon: Engaged

Framer Framed

Wednesday 20 December, 19:30 – 21:00

On Wednesday 20 December, Framer Framed is hosting a salon of the Young Collector’s Circle, an organisation connecting (aspiring) art collectors to the arts world. Tonight’s salon will go into the topic of collecting ‘engaged art’. What is engaged art and why is it interesting for collectors? How do engaged artists position themselves in relation to the commercial arts world?

These are some of the questions that will be approached from different perspectives: we will go into conversation with :

– gallerist Leylâ Akinci of Amsterdam-based gallery AKINCI. Representing amongst others artist Ali Kazma, part of current Framer Framed exhibition House of Wisdom;

– artist Antonio José Guzman;

– Josien Pieterse, initiator and director of Framer Framed;

– Manuela Klerkx, collector with a focus on Iranian art, also represents Ag Galerie in Teheran
