about collect 2022
Organised by the Crafts Council, Collect will return to its beautiful neoclassical home at Somerset House from 25-27 February 2022 with previews 23-24 February. The event will be open from 11-6pm and live on Artsy.net for all to enjoy until 6 March 2022.
Now in its 18th year, Collect is the leading authority on collectable contemporary craft and design. The fair showcases exceptional work made in the last five years by living artists and designers allowing each gallery to curate their own display and commission new pieces or bodies of work, especially for the fair.
The works at Collect represent the best of global contemporary craft and covers a wide range of disciplines, materials, and processes. Come along to discover lacquerware, neon, jewellery, furniture, tapestry, ceramics, metalwork, fibre art, glass and more.
There are over 30 galleries taking part this year, hailing from the US, Italy, France, Hong Kong, Lebanon, South Korea, Ireland, Germany and the UK. Get to know this year’s names on our exhibitor page.
