Emerging artists offer an exciting opportunity for collectors to engage with artists during the pivotal beginning stages of their careers, when they are full of experimentation and innovation. The collector’s job is, in many respects, to predict which artists will rise above their peers and which will add value to the history of their craft. Just how they do that is the focus of this course. Through intimate conversations with distinguished and emerging artists, curators, critics, gallery owners, and specialists, this course will provide in-depth insight into the emerging art market. Participants will take field trips to galleries that exhibit and represent emerging artists and visit artists’ studios to experience emerging art practices first hand.
