For the collector of contemporary art, the acquisition of new work is an aesthetic and intellectual adventure that records a personal journey and cuts a unique cross-section through the culture. Consequently every collector has a different story to tell about art and the art market today. The world of the collector overlaps with that of the artist but is also a realm of stratospheric prices, occasional plunges in value and gestures of bold speculation. As a public figure and commentator, the collector has regained a prominence and a spotlight role little seen in earlier decades, and Collecting Contemporary Art has been assembled to address the emergence of the twenty-first century collector. Published in JRPRingier's superb Hapax series, this volume gathers interviews with 40 collectors from Europe, the Americas and Asia, among them Renato Alpegiani, Blake Byrne, Teresa Sapey, Tian Jun, Uli Sigg, David Roberts and Ivo Wessel.
