The Strange Case of a Museum Director: Antonio Manfredi

In previous articles on Collecteurs, we have addressed the role and responsibilities of institutional directors. Tasked with representing an institution, securing funding, and important organisational structures, the position of director is a demanding task. What happens when it all goes wrong? In this series, we uncover stories of crime, desperation, political defiance, or corruption in museum leadership.

Zadig & Voltaire’s Fashion Campaign Comes Under Fire for Artist Copyright

On the 27th of January, Swiss artist Julian Charrière published a video of his work And Beneath It All Flows Liquid Fire (2019). The image features a three-layered fountain ablaze with flames against a dark background. In the caption he reveals that Instagram users tagging him on a recent campaign by the luxury fashion brand Zadig & Voltaire had alerted him to the striking resemblance of this piece to the company’s current marketing campaign.

A Day in the Art Life of Dozie Kanu

The ‘A Day in the Art Life’ series is meant to convey a sense of the life of an art world figure. What we’re hoping is to have a bit of the flavour of one’s routine , or perhaps an idealised version of a day in your life in the city in which you live and work, sprinkled in with more philosophical musings.

What's on the Agenda? (January 21-27)

Mishaps in museums! An artist proposes a deal with the British Museum, a museum director steps down, and an interim director is actually an external consultant, not a staff member.

Utopian Blessings in the Ruins of the Present: On the Recent Work of Christopher Kulendran Thomas

Art’s relationship to radical politics is more fraught than many people think. Making art directly serve revolution is old fashioned. In many instances, this reduces art to propaganda. And there’s no guarantee that the aims of any revolutionary movement, past or present, match up with reality or turn out the way people imagined them in the beginning.

What is the Ethics of Collecting?

What do you imagine when you think of a sale? Maybe you envision a wealthy individual in a shiny outfit within a fancy gallery space sipping a glass of champagne and speaking with the dealers about an artist and their works. The artist is not present to represent their work. The reality might differ in various ways, yet in most situations, art collecting does involve two unequal parties: those who purchase it have many more resources and privilege than those who produce it.

A Day in the Art Life of Liv Vaisberg

The ‘A Day in the Art Life’ series is meant to convey a sense of the life of an art world figure.

What Are DABs? (In Defense of the Blockchain and Why You Should Be Mad at NFTs)

Non Fungible Tokens (NFTs) are over. The crypto market has crashed, and pictures of monkeys or pixelated punks will forever be a symbol of the failed NFT market. For the foreseeable future, we can stop pretending “fungible” is a common term in our vocabulary.

Collecteurs Year in Review

This year has signaled a shift for many out of pandemic lockdown conditions and back into the regular grind. At Collecteurs, it has been a transformative year as we change with the times and circumstances. That’s why you can now experience our newly designed look and functions as well as Collecteurs’ digital marketplace CollecteursX. With exhibitions back in full flare - we recall the world’s major art events including biennales and fairs that have relaunched with puissance. Ecology remains an important subject in a now non-negatable visible global crisis which inevitably affects art and mobility. Digital solutions have rocked headlines year-round with the fall of NFTs and economic collapses. As we work through all of this from Collecteurs, we are proud to continue offering you a digital base for exhibitions, collections, research, and discussion open 24/7 with no need for costly transport or installs and with open access for all.
