The Art Week Conversations: Considering Collecting

Now in its fifth edition and targeted at new and existing audiences, The Art Week Conversations look at collecting and collectors in Southeast Asia, in particular Vietnam and Singapore. Every art market has its particular character and points of growth, developing according to the actions, insights and directions of its producers and buyers.

Panel discussions are topical, looking at current art collecting scenarios as well as recent milestones. Our erudite group of collectors, artists, curators and gallerists will parley the dynamics and ways-in of successful and authentic collecting. Artist, curators, and collectors speak out, going beyond common understandings of buying and collecting art. This is not the usual art market talk.

The Head Project by Victor Tan
16–31 January, 12pm–8pm
To RSVP, please visit here.

Victor Tan began The Head Project in 2013 in his studio to create and test the boundaries of art and social media for himself. The project has morphed over time, continuing to be a treat for visitors and friends to climb into this larger-than-life wire sculpture. The Head Project creates the experience of being on the inside of a sculpture, looking out. On behalf of Victor Tan, THEO Arts are privileged to invite you to view The Head from the inside.
