PHOTOFAIRS is delighted to announce the second edition of The Collectors’ Exhibition.
This year we are showcasing the University of Salford Art Collection (UK). Having acquired more than 700 works over the past 60 years, the Collection aims to make a lasting difference to the arts ecology in the North West of England. With a strong commitment to commissioning new work and supporting artists, the Collection also has a special focus on Chinese contemporary art, including artists such as Cao Fei, Samson Young and aaajiao. '
Taking the Leap' - a brave, risky or challenging move away from one's comfort zone - is the theme of this years' Collectors' Exhibition. Curated by Ying Kwok, the internationally celebrated HK independent curator, has selected works by artists that are innovative and confident in their creative strategy and design. The theme aligns with the institutions' own leap to diversify their collection and promote a wider range of international artists. Featuring artists from the UK and China and including a new commission and installation by leading female multimedia artist Lu Yang, the exhibition will provide inspiration to collectors and buyers interested in digital arts and new technologies.
