The fair features outstanding artworks made in the last five years by living artists and designers represented by close to 40 specialist galleries from across the globe, all selected by an expert advisory panel.
Collect focuses on exclusivity, reputation, rich narrative and thoughtful curation - seeking variety and diversity in its content and vision. Galleries from South Korea, China, France, Ireland, The Netherlands, USA, Lebanon and the UK will present works that span the widest range of craft disciplines.
