COLLECTING PHOTOGRAPHY WITH ALICE SACHS ZIMET 

Thursday January 28th 6:00 PM 

It's okay to collect art, and photography is both hot and inexpensive.  Start the new year by learning how to create your own collection from a leading scholar and connoisseur tasked with building and guarding Harvard Art Museums’ photography inventory.  She is enthusiastic to meet with us at a virtual presentation on Thursday, January 28th at 6:00 PM (MT).  Here's guessing she knows we have a few nice objects and might find them a home at Harvard.  

 

Alice Sachs Zimet is Chair of the Curatorial Committee on Photography at Harvard Art Museums, as well as the Chair of the Acquisitions Committee at the International Center of Photography and a founding board member of the Magnum Foundation. As one of the world’s top experts in photography, Alice advises private clients on purchases and  also conducts workshops across the United States, including a first-ever upcoming seminar at Christie’s Education which begins on January 13.  We’d encourage you to sign-up before her presentation on January 28!

 

Whether you’re a beginner or seasoned collector, Alice will offer invaluable tips — the ‘do’s and don’ts’ — to building a successful collection.  Learn where to shop, the right questions to ask, and the pitfalls to avoid using real world situations and examples from Alice’s own 300-piece museum quality collection.

If you’re buying photography for fun or to perhaps looking to create a world-class collection, you won’t want to miss this special virtual presentation.  Registration is free and instructions will be forthcoming.  Attend to glimpse the depth of the Harvard Museums holdings and to learn how affordable it can be to start with one piece and build around it.

 

We'd like to know you are interested in attending as soon as possible.  Please RSVP on our Eventbrite page or if available on this website.
