2024 marks twenty years of Collect as the leading authority on collectable contemporary craft and design, presented by the UK’s Crafts Council and taking place at London’s landmark destination Somerset House from 1 to 3 March, 2024 (previews on 28 and 29 February).

Launched in 2004 as the first international fair dedicated to contemporary craft and design, Collect is committed and continues to raise the profile of exceptional contemporary craft to the collectors’ market on an annual basis.

At a time when contemporary craft has never been more sought after with an active buying market, Collect continues to offer an unparalleled opportunity to acquire new, museum-quality work from living artists – all made within the last five years, and many commissioned especially for the fair. 

Focusing on exclusivity, reputation, rich narrative and thoughtful curation - seeking variety and diversity in its content and vision, a line-up of close to 40 specialist galleries from across the globe, representing over 400 artist makers, have been selected by an expert advisory panel for this milestone edition. 

The range of disciplines and materials at Collect spreads widely including ceramics, glass, lacquer, furniture, art jewellery, metalwork, textile and fibre, wood and paper, and pieces embracing more unusual materials such as resin, mica, corn-starch and plastics - as well as reused, repurposed, and recycled materials.

Alongside the international galleries, Collect Open, the fair’s platform for experimental proposals and installations by individual artists and collectives, will present 14 exciting new projects by artists. Collect Open participants are selected by a separate expert advisory panel and are invited to produce work that challenges material, social, political or personal perceptions.
