The ABCs of art collecting

Working together with WICE, city | art insider has designed courses to answer the questions we most often hear from novice collectors.  

  • How do I start a collection?
  • What strategies do I use to build one?
  • How do I choose works? 
  • How do I know what's a fair price? 
  • How do I know if a piece is a good investment? 
  • What are the pros and cons of the various avenues for purchase? 
  • How do I buy at auction, in a fair, at a gallery or from an artist's studio? 

The courses are offered as a series. The first  is focused on galleries, auctions and with a special guided visit to an art fair.

The second picks up with a more in depth look at galleries, purchasing directly from artists' studios and a special focus on photography, with a visit to Paris Photo.
