Meet the Circle: Charlotte

Charlotte joined Young Collectors Circle in 2018: "During Young Collectors Circle events you always meet new and familiar faces. In addition to these new contacts, you get to see places you have never been before. I had bought art before, but I lacked insight and knowledge. Young Collectors Circle has opened many doors for me: I really had no idea what was underneath the surface!"

Free online masterclass Intro Into Art Collecting

Join us for a mini masterclass ‘Intro Into Art Collecting’, designed specifically for non-members. We will discuss the why and how of art collecting, providing concrete examples: from Mondriaan to today’s Masterpieces. Can you collect art without an overflowing bank account? Does it matter if you don’t know anything about art history? We will delve deeper into the neurological reason why we love pretty pictures and explain why contemporary art can make us view the world in a different light.

Studio Visit: Zoro Feigl

Thu 19:00 · Online · Studio Visit ·

Would you like a behind-the-scenes look at the studio of artist Zoro Feigl? Learn more about the artistic practice of this innovative artist during an online studio visit.

The installations of Zoro Feigl seem to be alive. His materials dance and twist. Placed together in a space, the separate works become one: large and ponderous in places, nervous or gracious elsewhere.

Feigl’s forms are constantly changing, sometimes slowly, sometimes quickly. The exhibition space becomes an enlarged microscope: single-cell creatures, primitive organisms are twisting, groaning and convulsing. Without beginning or end the objects seem to be locked into themselves. As a viewer you become entangled in their movements: they embrace and amaze, but sometimes also frighten you.

We start the day with a cup of coffee and a guided tour through the exhibition, which doesn't consist of individual stands but is a curated exhibition tailored to this unique building. After the tour we will visit some Antwerp galleries together, including Zeno X and DMW Gallery. After the two-hour program, you can explore the rest of the Antwerp Art Weekend on your own.

Please note: The program will only go ahead if the travel restrictions to Belgium are (partly) lifted and code red is no longer applicable. Travel to and from Brussels is on your own account.

Studio Visit: Nazif Lopulissa

Wed 19:00 · Rotterdam · Studio Visit ·

Join us for a peak into the creative process of emerging artist Nazif Lopulissa, who will open the doors of his studio exclusively for Young Collectors Circle members.

Nazif Lopulissa is a Dutch artist whose work explores the ordinary. Graduated at the Willem de Kooning Academie in Rotterdam, Lopulissa started his career in graffiti and street art. His work is playful, bold, colourful and blurs the edge between imagination and reality. He has a fascination for playgrounds because of their inner contradiction between their playful appearance and the strict design rules on which they are built.
