"Don’t panic! I’m selling my collection" Exhibition


poster for "Don’t panic! I’m selling my collection" Exhibition

This event has ended.

Curated by Claire Distenfeld, "Don’t panic! I’m selling my collection" is a show of works drawn from the private collections of a number of leading art collectors. Distenfeld describes the exhibition: "...this show is not a landfill, not a graveyard; each piece is present for individual reasons. Whether it be a financial victim burdened to choose which prized work to part with, over-zealous pistols who bought too much too fast or gullible greeners who acted on impulse, viewers will now have to be active, skeptical and aware when looking at each mysterious piece. 'Don’t Panic!' is anonymous, in that no collector's name is exposed. We are withholding information from the viewer. But do not panic, focus on why the piece is here: if it makes you “anxious”, if it makes you squirm, and if it’s truly “ugly,” then hell, it might just be great."
