Magnificent Obsessions: The Artist as Collector

Barbican, London


This is the first major exhibition in the UK to present the fascinating personal collections of post-war and contemporary artists. Ranging from mass-produced memorabilia and popular collectibles to one-of-a-kind curiosities, rare artefacts and specimens, these collections provide insight into the inspirations, influences, motives and obsessions of artists.

In the February issue of Apollo, Hiroshi Sugimoto talks to Thessaly La Force about how his art collection influences his work. Click here to subscribe.
