When people think about a "collection", they often consider its start and endpoints. However, there is far more to an object's "life" within a collection than its acquisition, and eventual sale or donation.
This panel will discuss the vision and practicalities of how collectors and their advisors form and manage collections through the importance of provenance, research, exhibitions, publications, education, and other initiatives. It will examine the opportunities and networks available that dealers, advisors and others offer collectors to in realising this vision, and will address, for example, how dealers assist collectors in researching, sourcing and curating works; how and why provenance research is conducted; and the involvement and focus of independent curators, collection management specialists and advisors.
