The Art Guide Celebrates its Fifth Edition

A look into the official launch at Frieze London

On the morning of Thursday 4th October 2018 collectors and art world professionals made their way to the BMW Lounge at Frieze London to secure a seat for the official launch of the fifth edition of the BMW Art Guide by Independent Collectors

Presenting the brand new and revamped edition of the Art Guide was Independent Collectors founder Christian Kaspar Schwarm accompanied by Patricia Sandretto Re Rebaudengo and Alexander V. Petalas from The Perimeter in London. Discussing the topic of 'Collecting & Beyond’, the three collectors shed light on the different ways in which they collect and how collecting expands into other aspects of their lives, resulting in a complex but never dull relationship with both collecting and contemporary art.

The fifth edition of the BMW Art Guide by Independent Collectors proudly presents 270 private yet publicly accessable collections of contemporary art in 45 countries and 196 cities – including some that are showcasing their collection for the very first time. You can buy a copy of the guide directly via Hatje Cantz and Amazon or download the Ebook.
