These goals are accomplished through the collaboration with cultural and educational institutions, internships, curated student visits to the art fair, supporting initiatives by art schools across the country towards art management and curating, alongside art appreciation, conservation and preservation.
A Collector's Circle, accessible through a membership fee and the submission of an application form, will enable art enthusiasts with a desire of starting an art collection or learn more about modern and contemporary art, to enhance their knowledge in several areas, namely collecting and conservation.
The membership offers several benefits throughout the year.
