What Artists Collect

The video below, shot by David Clack for Time Out London, is a sneak peek at several artists' personal collections, which are featured in the ticketed "Magnificent Obsessions: The Artist as Collector", on view at Barbican Centre in London through May 25.

The first major exhibition of such private collections in the United Kingdom, "Magnificent Obsessions" showcases objects lived with, kept hidden, or put away in storage by 14 internationally known artists, including Edmund de Waal, the late Sol LeWitt, Hiroshi Sugimoto, and Pae White

A selection of images is available at the exhibition link above. Fascinating!
