Collecting contemporary art: trends, influences and main players.

The evening presented an opportunity for Artsocial Friends to learn about the insights about the exuberant world of contemporary art from some of the most exciting professionals in the field.

Francesca Gavin, an art critic and writer, and Eugenio Re Rebaudengo, a new generation art collector and entrepreneur, were in conversation about the main trends and the most influential figures of contemporary art. 

The talk took place in the private lounge room of the Quattro Passi restaurant in Mayfair, and was held in support of the Gift of Life Charity Foundation and specifically to raise funds for the operation of 16-year old Dasha Grebennikova from Rostov-on-Don suffering with tumour on her leg bone.
