As part of the public programme for Collecting as Practice, this event explores the relationships that are formed between collectors and artists. Resident collector Pedro Barbosa and artist Deyson Gilbert discuss their long-term collaboration exploring ephemera - posters, artists’ books and vinyl albums – produced by conceptual artists in the 1960s and 70s that form a substantial part of the Moraes-Barbosa Collection.
Taking this collaboration as a starting point, and emphasising the potential of collecting as a site of encounter which privileges the creation of social relations between people, rather than the production and display of objects, we explore modes of exchange and interaction and discuss how the intimate relations might point to new understandings of the connection between art collection, production, and distribution.
Further speakers to be announced, moderated by Rose Lejeune.
