Packsaddle Lecture | Great Art Collections… What Makes Them So?

October 30 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am

Art collections represent curated stories and themes, each different from the next. Whether it be collecting or creating art, there is an undeniable force behind an assemblage that brings communities together. As we celebrate the history and diversity of Packsaddle acquisitions to NERAM, we ask ourselves… what makes for a good art collection?

There have been many reasons for the individual and collective purchasing of art during the 36 years of Packsaddle. Whether it be purchasing art to furnish our living areas, sometimes accumulating into a feverish desire to cover walls from ceiling to floor with works. Other times, art is purchased to support artists and institutions such as NERAM, where the collections hold their own unique narratives.

There is no doubt that art collections make for an engaging conversation. In the third event for the 2021 Packsaddle lecture series, join NERAM Director Rachael Parsons in conversation with artist Angus Nivison as they discuss their favourite art collections, including those at NERAM, and the people and institutions that make them great.
