MASTERPIECE Talks: Tom Hammick joins the RA to discuss The Artist as Collector
Are artists’ collections something that should obtain more attention from curators, scholars and dealers?
Dr Anna Dempster Head of Academic Programmes RA will chair a panel discussion at MASTERPIECE with artists Tom Hammick, Humphrey Ocean RA and Remi Rough.
Art collections reflect the owner’s artistic tastes and can represent a very specific point of view. This panel discussion invites us to reflect on the artist as a collector and will ask what, why and how artists collect.
Leading artists have been invited to share highlights from their own collections and explain the rationale behind the selection of specific objects and works of art.The panel explores the purpose of collecting and aims to demystify the influence an artist’s collection might have on their own practice.
