Collect is the only gallery-presented art fair dedicated to modern craft and design. Through the years Collect has been instrumental in defining and growing the market for contemporary craft.

Collect celebrates over 400 artists presented by galleries coming from across the globe to this London stage, showcasing exceptional works in ceramics, glass, metal, wood and textiles to makers working in non-traditional materials with experimental techniques.

For 2020, Collect is moving to a striking new home at Somerset House and is excited to be taking over a large number of beautiful rooms presenting a new environment for Collect exhibitors to contextualise and curate modern craft.

The International Art Fair for Modern Craft and Design is at Somerset House from 27 February - 1 March, 2020.

In addition to the main fair Collect Open presents new ambitious craft installations by individual artists and collectives and a lively talks programme explores contemporary craft with leading voices from the worlds of craft, design, architecture, fashion and art.
