Collect 2017: Review

collectreview2017

Collect, Europe’s leading art fair for contemporary objects, returned to the Saatchi Gallery from the 2 – 6 February with close-of-show sales estimated at £1.5 million, over 14,000 visitors, and £30,550 raised in the Crafts Council Benefit Auction. Collect featured 37 exhibiting galleries from 13 different countries on three continents showing work by over 400 artists. It presented the most exciting and newest craft-led artworks from around the world with many premiering at the fair. A significant number of pieces were sold and public and private collectors were out in force including the British Museum, National Museums Scotland, Musée Ariana and the V&A who acquired eight works.

Rosy Greenlees, Executive Director, Crafts Council commented: “The energy of the refreshed Collect was palpable. The fair looked stunning, the quality of the work was exemplary. We’re delighted that we had our largest ever number of visitors at the Saatchi Gallery reflecting what a tremendous experience Collect is for anyone who has an interest in contemporary craft. It was heartening that our first benefit auction raised over £30,000 towards a new home for craft.”

The Collect Awards, in association with Champagne Pommery were presented as follows: benandsebastian, represented by Køppe Contemporary Objects, won the Collect Newcomer Award; The Scottish Gallery won the Collect Gallery Award for their display of iconic jewellers Wendy Ramshaw and David Watkins; Claire Curneen won the Collect Open Exhibitor Award for her large ceramic diorama Tending the Fires.
The Crafts Council Benefit Auction powered by Artsy, included lots donated by Grayson Perry, Magdalene Odundo, Edmund de Waal and Kate Malone. £30,550 was raised for a new home for craft. This bold new vision for the Crafts Council building in Islington will transform the future of craft in the UK by providing people with a chance to discover new makers, engage with our Collection, handle objects, attend talks, debates and film screenings, and much more.
