Every week Young Collectors Circle offers an exciting and varied online and offline program, where you will meet artists, professionals, seasoned collectors and other art lovers. Our events range from an exclusive behind the scenes tour at an auction house to a visit to an extraordinary private collection; and from a talkshow about the value of art to a peek inside artists' studios. Digital events are presented at lunch time in US timezones and early evening in EU time zones. Want to learn more? Scroll down for more info and the introduction video!
Young Collectors Circle has an excellent sense of which artists are promising. Eva, member since 2019
The programming of Young Collectors Circle is based relevance and diversity: in our programs, we showcase the art sector in all its aspects, meaning we pay extra attention to diversity and inclusion in our program. Contemporary art in particular reflects on our society today: Art is more than just a pretty picture, the idea behind it - the research, the message, the reflection - is valuable. Artists of today, of your own generation, deal with themes that are currently relevant: think of racism, feminism, the environment. It is those voices that we wish to amplify in our program.
Program lines 2023
We look forward to organising beautiful and surprising programs about art and collecting for our Young Collectors Community in 2023. You can expect more thematic programming from Young Collectors Circle this year. The majority of our programs will be embedded within three thematic pillars: Identity, Ecology & Crossing Borders. By programming several activities within these themes, we offer our members more substantive depth and we show that contemporary art is almost always a reflection of current developments. Within the Identity theme you can expect studio visits, talks and exhibitions surrounding (gender) identity, role patterns and self-expression. The programs within the Ecology theme revolve around the interaction between people, nature & art. Within the Crossing Borders theme, we explore the boundaries of artists who work in an experimental, innovative and cross-medial way. The programs can of course be visited separately, but for more substantive depth you can of course follow the entire program series.
Every week you can expect a new online and offline offer of events, suited for any entry level. Our events are a combination of inspirational and practical information, but also offer a social network of like-minded people and a special and exclusive look behind the scenes of the art world. Below you can read more about the types of events, divided into 5 categories: Inspiration, Discovery, Behind the Scenes, Knowledge and Community.
