A Private Affair: Personal Collections of Contemporary Art tells the personal stories behind private collections of contemporary art and includes work from emerging northern artists, to internationally recognised artists. The exhibition aims to explore the background behind individual collections; why do individuals collect contemporary art, what influences decisions about what to collect, how do individuals and their families live with the art, and do relationships with artworks change over time?
A Private Affair has been curated in collaboration with Mark Doyle, Head of Collector Development, Contemporary Art Society North West, and will be opened by Paul Hobson, Director of the Contemporary Art Society.
