From the Eye Straight Down to the Soul: A Panel on How Collecting Begins with Griffin Art Projects’ Adjunct Curator, Dr. Karen Tam

April 24, 2022



Join Griffin Art Projects’ adjunct curator, Dr. Karen Tam and special guests for an engaging panel discussion focused on art collecting. Drawing on themes explored in Griffin’s current exhibition, Per Diem: The Gerd Metzdorff Collection, this panel explores how collecting art begins, how collections evolve over time and the relationships that develop between artists and collectors. 

After the presentations, join us for Chats & Chews, an informal post-conference discussion. Bring an appetizer and/or a drink, and join us in conversation to unpack the ideas sparked during the panel discussion. Initially conceived as part of the Whose Chinatown? virtual conference, Chats & Chews are intended as informal mingling sessions for community members to connect and come together to explore the themes discussed in the previous panel over casual conversation, virtual drinks and snacks.
