Art Market PhD Studentship, Loughborough University

Museum Culture and the Art Market: Private Collecting and Public Responsibility it in the Contemporary Artworld.

The objective of this PhD studentship is to investigate connections between public museum practices, private collecting, and art market activity in the contemporary artworld. Questions concerning the social functions of collecting have become acute in light of the significant rise in the number of high net worth collectors in the global art market over the past decade. This project proposes an examination of the extension of collector influence beyond the traditional boundaries of the art market, including, but not limited to, the establishment of institutions that compete with public museums. By enquiring into the social goods and powers derived from private collecting, this project seeks to provide a better understanding of the public responsibilities of individuals who are shaping the exhibition practices and trajectories of the contemporary artworld.
