Photo London Presents: Collecting Contemporary Photography, November 2015
The first in a series of pre-fair talks hosted in the lead up to the 2016 edition of Photo London, Collecting Contemporary Photography offers a unique opportunity to discover more about the role of the artist and dealer in the contemporary photography market. The discussion will be an essential guide to collecting from the perspective of a dealer, artist and curator and will examine how these roles interact with each other.
The panelists will also explore the importance of photography within an art collection, and to what extent work is made in view of the commercial art world.
The panel consists of:
Chris Littlewood, Director of Photography at Flowers Gallery
Simon Roberts, Artist
And will be chaired by Zelda Cheatle, curator, editor and former gallerist.
Photo London 2016 (19-22 May 2016) is a unique festival of photography, centred on a major international photography Fair. Running once again in the spectacular and historic grounds of Somerset House, the Fair showcases the broad range of photographic practice, from vintage to contemporary. This series of discussions aims to address the main themes in Photography today.
