As part of the public programme for Collecting as Practice, this conversation seeks to explore the public responsibilities of private initiatives.

This discussion will take place with two collectors-in-residence at Delfina Foundation, Lu Xun (founder of Sifang Parkland in Nanjing, China) and Luba Michailova (founder IZOLYATSIA, Ukraine) – whose own private initiatives are set within very different geo-political contexts but have overlapping aims of establishing invigorating and supporting cultural scenes for local communities.

The event will seek to address the ways in which local cultural histories and social needs can be acknowledged alongside national and international artistic communities and ask how artists, curators and private collectors collaborate in bringing trans-national critical thinking, pedagogy and exchange around visual art into the public domain in meaningful ways.

Further speakers to be announced, moderated by Rose Lejeune.
