Collecting the Emerging Symposium logo

'Collecting the Emerging' is a two-day symposium with academics, curators, collectors and artists to examine issues around collecting new and experimental art. With ever increasing interest in and opportunities for artists in the early stages of their careers, this event will investigate what the term 'emerging' means in relationship to contemporary art and its wider historical context.

Discussions will cover economic and aesthetic value in the emerging art market; explore emerging practice and its relationship to historical narratives, archives and taxonomies; and consider how the current enthusiasm for collecting contemporary art impacts on practices that are still at a formative stage.

Speakers include:

This event is a partnership between UCL Art Museum and Zabludowicz Collection. It accompanies Zabludowicz Collection: 20 Years, an exhibition celebrating the 20th anniversary of the Zabludowicz Collection, which includes significant and rarely seen works by over 30 leading artists, and Re-Launch, a show that marks the reopening of UCL’s Art Museum's main space after a programme of improvements. This presents a selection of existing, newly commissioned and site specific artworks in collaboration with Slade artists created in response to the collections and the theme of re-launch.
