Talk: Off the Walls
30 January 2021
3.00pm – 4.00pmZoom webinar
Collecting art is conventionally regarded as having a trove of fine art and artefacts, such as paintings, sculptures, or perhaps installation or video. Yet artistic practice has long transcended narrow definitions, and crossed over to other creative fields such as architecture, design, fashion and wearables, visual culture, tech and others. Such cross-disciplinary projects and collaborations also increasingly feature in major commissions. In an expanded field of artistic and creative practice, what might collecting ‘look’ like? How can one collect, support and be a patron of artistic production ‘beyond’ walls?
Speakers include Michelangelo Samson (Managing Director, Art Collector), Jackson Tan (Artist, Designer & Founding Partner of PHUNK), Ginette Chittick (Visual Artist and Programme Leader of Diploma in Creative Direction for Fashion, LASALLE College of the Arts), moderated by Tracy Phillips (Director, PPURPOSE).
