Collect 2009

The Crafts Council is delighted to present COLLECT 2009, the leading international art fair for contemporary objects. Now in its sixth year the fair will take place from 15 – 17 May 2009 over three floors of the Saatchi Gallery’s new space on London’s King’s Road. Known as the event to view and buy the best in contemporary craft, COLLECT 2009 will present both established artists and new talent, covering all disciplines: ceramics, glass, jewellery, silver and fine metalwork, textiles, and wood and furniture.
Over 300 artists will exhibit at COLLECT 2009, representing
37 galleries from the UK and Ireland, Central Europe and Scandinavia as well as the United States, Japan and Australia. First-time exhibitors for 2009 include the Crafts Council of Ireland; Collection d’Ateliers d’Art de France; Norwegian gallery Kunst1 and Denmark’s Køppe Gallery.
COLLECT 2009 also sees the return of Art Fund COLLECT, an initiative launched in 2008 by The Art Fund, the UK’s leading independent art charity, in partnership with the Crafts Council. The scheme provides funding for museums and galleries to bid to buy ambitious contemporary craft for UK public collections.
For 2009 the fund has been increased to £75,000, allowing a shortlist of curators to select significant works by artists and makers of international status. The successful applicants will be announced on 14 May 2009.
COLLECT 2009 will also feature an exciting programme of events and commissions curated by the Crafts Council, details of which will be announced in late March 2009.
