Keepers of Culture – Considering Photographic Collections

format-festivalUncertain States bring together artists, collectors, curators and archivists in a day of discussion around the role and artistic importance of the collector and collections within the context of fine art photography. Collections – in any form, private or public play a unique and crucial part in the documentation of contemporary visual culture. In open discussion, speakers and audience will consider the artistic influence of these collections. Who is collecting, where are the collections being held and what and why work is preserved.

The day aims to encourage the audience that collecting can be a creative experience open to all and a superb entry level for anyone with the aspiration to start their own art collection.
