Collect, the international art and craft fair, has moved house. This year, over 40 galleries from the UK and around the world will descend on Somerset House to show a breadth of work from ceramics and glass, to metal, wood and textiles. Now in its 16th year, Collect has played a vital role in redefining the growing market for contemporary craft, exhibiting museum-quality pieces and pushing boundaries when it comes to experimental techniques and non-traditional materials.
Within its new neoclassical home, Collect promises a glamorous environment from which to admire and possibly purchase, exceptional one-off pieces. There will also be talks from, among others interior designer, Kit Kemp, Crafts Council Creative Director, Natalie Melton and Kazuhito Takadoi and Giovanni Corvaja – both finalists in last year’s Loewe Craft Prize. Keep an eye out for works by Akiko Hirai, Lee Soo Ra, Alice Walton and also the VIP Lounge which has been designed by Cox London.
Collect runs from 27 February to 1 March 2020 with a preview on 26 February. For 20% off tickets use this link.
