Collecting art is as personal or public as each person chooses; each collection is considered the creative expression of the collector. This conversation brings together views from both the buyer and the seller on what to look for when buying art: What are some of the common and/or unusual factors in acquiring artworks from emerging, mid-career, established artist and artist estates? When acquiring artworks, what commitments are made, and to whom? How to balance ‘buyer’s remorse” and impulsive-buys, along with trusting intuition and negotiating codes of ethics will also be discussed.
