Young Collectors Contemporary Art Fair

Young Arts Patrons announces the second annual Young Collectors Contemporary scheduled for March 24-26, 2017. The art fair returns to Memphis to take over the city’s newest pre-vitalization project, Clayborn Temple, for a three day long experience blending the contemporary art scene of Memphis with a

hefty dose of international flavor.

Young Collectors Contemporary presents an event geared towards international artists, curators, galleries, and collectors. The inaugural art fair held at Crosstown Arts in March 2016, featured over 25 artists from as far as Jamaica and New York City.

Once again artwork at the art fair aims to be priced for beginning collectors with 50% of submissions available below $2,500 per piece and a price cap at $10,000 per piece.

Young Collectors Contemporary believes in highlighting the art and creative business as one of the main missions of the art fair. The 2017 edition will offer four distinct sectors for creatives across the country to apply and a main stage:

Emerging Curators

Young Arts Patrons’ annual Young Collectors Contemporary Art Fair is proud to announce the emerging curators section of the 2017 Fair. A highly anticipated sector of the Memphis show will feature independent and institutional curators that will design a space in the fair.
