Peggy Guggenheim created a unique art collection that is nowadays admired by thousands of visitors. What were her first steps? How did she decide which artists to support and which works to buy?
The Peggy Guggenheim Collection presents a short course for non-professionals who wish to gain insight into collecting. How do you become a collector of contemporary art? How do you learn to choose a quality artist? What about costs and budgets? How do you invest in the ‘Picassos’ of tomorrow? Four webinars will offer guidelines to orient oneself in the global art system, including biennials, fairs, galleries, museums, and foundations.
The course is led by Ludovico Pratesi, art critic, curator, director of the Guastalla Foundation for contemporary art in Rome, professor of contemporary art history at the Accademia di Belle Arti of Urbino, art critic of La Repubblica, and author of L’arte di collezionare arte contemporanea nel mondo globale (2019).
