Shanghai art fair to feature UK university collection
The University of Salford, Manchester, has since the 1960s assembled an art collection of some 700 items, which are not only for students and faculty members, but also exhibitions around the world.
A selection of image-based works from The University of Salford Art Collection will be on show at this year's PHOTOFAIRS | Shanghai, from Sept 20 to 22 at the Shanghai Exhibition Center.
Curated by Ying Kwok, the exhibition titled Taking the Leap will introduce to people the diversity and dynamics of Salford's collection. And it will offer potential collectors clues on how to collect experimental, conceptual works that combine photography, moving images, video and other techniques, revealing a unique landscape of digital art.
PHOTOFAIRS | Shanghai has become a leading destination for photo-based works and artists exploring with the medium. The sixth edition of the annual fair will bring together 50 galleries and the works of some 200 artists from home and abroad.
