Guest Masterclass by Catawiki: Buying Art Online

Wed 19:00 · Online · Masterclass · ·

On Wednesday 9 December our partner Catawiki hosts a masterclass on how to buy art online.

Being able to purchase a beautiful work of art online changes the entire experience of buying art. The trend to persue and buy art online has only continued to rise over the years and has boomed during the past few months with the current covid-19 crisis.

The rise of online art platforms has lowered the threshold of collecting art. Increased pricing transparency, variety, and efficiency are major pros of purchasing art online. Catawiki carries out online auctions on a weekly basis throughout very diverse categories, ranging from 17th century paintings to street art. In this masterclass you will learn more about how the online art market works and gain useful tips and tricks on how to collect art online.

*This masterclass is part of a paid partnership between Young Collectors Circle and Catawiki.

Gallery Talk: Laurence Aëgerter at Gallery Caroline O'Breen

Sat 13:00 · Amsterdam · Gallery Visit ·

On Saturday 12 December artist Laurence Aëgerter will talk about her new soloshow ‘La main et l'oeil’ at Gallery Caroline O’Breen.

For years, Laurence Aëgerter has been immersed in her visual research on the power of images. She questions the process of perception and investigates various strategies to activate the spectator. One of her most treasured areas of research are great icons of art and culture; they accumulate in museum catalogues as well as 'found images' via online search engines.

To accommodate as many members as possible in a safe way, we divide this visit into two sessions. The first talk is scheduled at 1PM and the second one at 1.45PM. You will hear which group you have been assigned to after registration.

Our programs are continuously adjusted based on the measures of the government and RIVM. Face masks are mandatory during all our programs and participants are asked to fill in a health check in advance.
