Road map to collecting
Recently I've read a couple of books about collecting contemporary art; Adam Lindemann's Collecting Contemporary (Taschen, 2006) and Louisa Buck and Judith Greer's Owning Art: The contemporary art collector’s handbook (Cultureshock Media Ltd, 2006). Although they describe a world quite far removed from art collecting in New Zealand ("placement", "fractional giving", "horizontal" cp. "vertical" collecting), they're still fascinating.
A new book on the block about collecting contemporary art, Pablo Helguera’s Manual of Contemporary Art Style (Jorge Pinto Books, 2007), is reviewed by on Art World Salon.
