How to start collecting art with Liv Vaisberg

Fosbury & Sons is pleased to invite Liv Vaisberg for an online workshop on how to start collecting art. What can we do as an individual during this crisis to support artists and start a collection? Liv Vaisberg will guide you through this.

This unprecedented crisis caused by the Covid-19 is affecting everyone, but some are more affected than others. Artists, who for a large part mainly live from other jobs such as working in a bar or a shop, are right now put in a very difficult situation. Galleries, museums and other art institutions have all closed their doors and put their programs on hold, while striving to put a digital program together. What can we do as an individual in these times to support artists and start a collection? Anyone and with any budget, can support artists.

This workshop will go through the essential elements to start a collection, and especially in the current context.
