Who are the actors of the art market? Is it possible to collect without a big budget? How do you choose what artwork to collect?

Followed by a visit to the fair, you will also connect with other emerging collectors and industry stakeholders.

This program is free and is aimed at young adults aged 18 to 30 who wish to start a collection of contemporary art, or who wish to immerse themselves in the world of collecting. An entrance to Plural art fair and snacks are included.
