Young Collectors Travel organizes trips to renowned foreign art fairs and destinations. During these 3- to 5-day trips, you will discover the art scene of the selected destinations not only through tours of the fairs, but also through collection visits, gallery tours, studio visits and museum visits, plus you will get to know your travel companions better over cocktails and dinner. In 2024 we will visit art fair ARCO in bustling Madrid, the famous Venice Biennial, the sunny south of France for Art-o-rama in Marseille and the spectacular Château La Coste, and last but not least we will visit Oslo Art Weekend. We are also looking ahead to a trip to the dynamic city of Cape Town in February of 2025. Read more about the different trips below!


Château La Coste, part of our trip to Marseille in August of 2024.

Travel Program 2024-2025


For many collectors it is a recurring item on their calendar: a visit to ARCO art fair in the cultural heart of Spain, Madrid. From March 8 to 10, we will visit this leading fair for contemporary art. The 2024 edition of ARCOmadrid focuses on the Caribbean, with the program featuring artists and galleries from the region, selected by curators Sara Hermann and Carla Acevedo-Yates. We will participate in some parts of ARCOmadrid's VIP program and, of course, also visit artists' studios and a private collection in this dynamic city.

Deadline for registration: January 15.

We will visit the main exhibition in the Arsenale, curated by Brazilian curator Adriano Pedrosa, and the country pavilions in the Giardini, with each country showing the top of the bill of its artists. Also on the program is a visit to Francois Pinault's collection at Punta della Dogana and a look inside the Peggy Guggenheim Collection at Palazzo Venier dei Leoni. We conclude with the newest generation of contemporary artists selected for the Future Generation Art Prize.

Art-o-rama Marseille/Southern France

From August 30 - September 1 we will visit the lively port city of Marseille, where art fair Art-o-rama takes place. This fair is known for its hot & happening character, where young galleries from all over the world come to present their artists. Of course, the south of France is also known for its many "fondations d'art," and we will spend the day at perhaps the most spectacular one: Château La Coste, where we will not only visit the art center and sculpture garden, but also dine together.

Deadline for registration: June 1.
