Different areas will be reserved for genre-specific work. ‘Collect Open’, for example, will show the creations of established and emerging artists with exploratory and risk -taking aims. Jay Osgerby made the 2018 selection of projects on the basis of scale, concept and ambition. ‘Collect Spotlights’, which was established last year, features the work of selected galleries that epitomise the cutting-edge and immersive potential of crafting in 2018.
