Six renowned collectors discuss their personal viewpoints and experiences in a lively debate on the role of art at a moment in human history where a complete shutdown has highlighted the significance of art and culture.
Is art a necessity? Is the collector-commissioner an asset to the market? Has the pandemic reinforced opportunistic buying? Will co-sharing platforms become pervasive?
