Over the past twenty years, little in the art world has changed as dramatically as private collecting. Rapidly growing private collections around the world have garnered attention as tastemakers, while the reduced financial capacities of public collections have further pushed their private counterparts into the limelight. From politicians to artists, market players to the media, many are wondering what roles private collections will play in the future. POOL explores these questions, theoretically and practically, through discursive and curatorial experimentation.
