Magnificent Obsessions: The Artist as Collector

Magnificent Obsessions: The Artist as Collector is the first major exhibition in the UK to present the fascinating personal collections of post-war and contemporary artists, including Arman, Peter Blake, Hanne Darboven, Edmund de Waal, Damien Hirst, Howard Hodgkin, Dr Lakra, Sol LeWitt, Martin Parr, Jim Shaw, Hiroshi Sugimoto, Andy Warhol, Pae White and Martin Wong/Danh Vo. Their collections range from mass-produced memorabilia and popular collectibles to one-of-a-kind curiosities, rare artefacts, and natural history specimens. Curated by Lydia Yee, the exhibition presents a selection of objects from the collections of the artists alongside at least one key example of their work to provide insight into their inspirations, influences, motives, and obsessions.


“People have been reading photography as a true document, at the same time they are now getting suspicious. I am basically an honest person, so I let the camera capture whatever it captures…whether you believe it or not is up to you; it’s not my responsibility, blame my camera, not me.” “人們往往認為攝影作品是一種真正的文獻,但同時,人們也越來越感到懷疑。基本上,我算是 一個誠實的人,所以我讓相機捕捉那些進入它鏡 頭的一切事物……不管你相信與否,是否相信取 決於你,這不是我的責任,要怪就怪我的相機,別怪我
