Meet Young Art Collector
Young Art Collector highlights the best in collecting visual contemporary art from the perspective of YAC curators. We share our knowledge about artists, creative expression and the role of the collector in supporting an inclusive and lucrative global art community. Our aim is to turn art enthusiasts into art collectors through purchases from contemporary visual artists.
YAC is a platform for storytelling. However, instead of focusing solely on the journeys of artists, we also show the journeys of the collectors that support them. Through this approach, Young Art Collector becomes integral part of the conversation and interaction between artists and collectors – highlighting the intimate connection they share with each other.
Whether they meet at a party or event, or whether an artwork inspires a potential collector visiting a museum or gallery, art is personal, and there is always a relational connection – even if the collectors’ main goal is to collect strictly as an investment.
Choosing the artists for this site is at the discretion of our curators – giving Young Art Collector the opportunity to function as a virtual art gallery. In the future, we will sponsor artist talks, studio visits, hold special museum events, and host select and limited edition art sales.
