Art is for you!

Young Collectors Circle is a platform for emerging art collectors. How dó you start your own collection? To find out what makes your heart tick, to explore different art forms, to find out how art is priced, and to figure out what all those technical terms mean, we organize salons and events specifically aimed at art lovers with collecting ambitions.

I’m working on collecting art, something that I used to think was not very 'me'. But I've discovered it is an oddly exciting feeling to view pieces as an interested, potential collector! Participant Collectors for Collectors tour at Amsterdam Art Fair

But buying art is something that’s bigger than the collector and the empty wall over his or her couch. Private art collectors start buying from young artists long before they’re recognized by the big institutions. The art scene needs a new generation of collectors in order to maintain a vital art scene: not just by investing it in financially, but also by creating interest in new artists and art forms. Changing the art world one artwork at a time!

Events

Our events are a great way to dive into the local art scene and meet likeminded people! Events include gallery tours, private, corporate and museum collection visits, tours at art fairs and academies and artist studio visits: all events accesible for English speakers are marked with a globe on the calendar on our homepage.

We also host trips abroad, exclusively for our members. Previously, Young Collectors Circle-members visited Art Basel Week (CH), Copenhagen Art Week (DK), Frieze Week in London (UK) and in Armory Week in New York (USA). In 2019, we are visiting Frieze Week New York (USA), Art Basel Week (CH) and the Venice Biennial (IT).

With witty remarks and in-depth questions, presenter Sarah Meuleman manages to unravel the stories behind works of art and get insider tips for the audience. Visitor Young Collectors Salon x The Hoxton: International
