PHOTOFAIRS is delighted to announce the second edition of the Collectors’ Exhibition.
2019 showcased the University of Salford Art Collection (UK), who have acquired more than 700 works over the past 60 years. 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, 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 the show included a new commission and installation by leading female multimedia artist Lu Yang. The exhibition provided inspiration to collectors and buyers interested in digital arts and new technologies.
