Independent Collectors

June 22, 2010

The new Independent Collectors Featured Artist section offers selected galleries the exclusive chance of presenting their artists to the members and visitors of Independent Collectors.


Independent Collectors is the first community specifically designed for collectors of contemporary art. Since the start in June 2008, more than 3,000 collectors from over 80 countries have registered, and every month we welcome more and more of them.

From June 2010 onwards we are offering selected galleries the chance of presenting “Featured Artists” to our members.

Each booked “Featured Artist” is presented in a prominent position on the homepage of Independent Collectors for the duration of 3 months (automatic rotation process). From here the collectors have direct access to the corresponding feature page, which shows the artist’s works currently offered by the gallery. A short information text about the artist and the direct link to the contact of the gallery is displayed at the very top of every exhibition. Every gallery can enter and update its “Featured Artists” at any time – as often as they wish, without extra costs. We recommend to present young and emergent artists which are currently on show in museum- or gallery-exhibitions or at art fairs.

As a special benefit we’re offering galleries a dedicated web address for each booked “Featured Artist” containing the artists name, which you can send to your clients to inform them about available works and new exhibitions, for example. During the time booked by the gallery, this URL can be used and communicated freely. Together with the unlimited possibility to update, this is an extremely useful feature to inform the collectors via e-mail about artworks, which are still available.

This offer is currently limited to galleries, which have taken part in Art Basel (both in Basel or in Miami Beach) or in Liste Basel in one of the latest three editions.

The first galleries have already started: Johann König, Nicolai Wallner, Francesca Minini and more. Thus, go ahead and present your artists now:
