Join us as Charles Nodrum, Director, Charles Nodrum Gallery and other industry guests talk about how to start an art collection.

So many questions! What's worth buying - and what's not? Should you buy new or old work, minor works by major artists, or new work by young and emerging artists? Sculpture or works on paper? Should you buy for profit or enjoyment...or both? What indeed constitutes affordable art for those starting out and on a budget?

If you have been wondering how to upgrade from posters and get into the real thing, don't miss this lively and informative event. Part of RMIT Gallery's exhibition Chaos & Order: 120 years of collecting at RMIT public events.

Charles Nodrum

Charles Nodrum first opened his gallery in Richmond in 1984 and has since been the leading advocate of mid-century Australian abstraction. The gallery presents regularly changing solo and group exhibitions of modern and contemporary Australian art, with a strong focus on 1960s Australian abstract and alternative art movements – as well as some International art of the period. The gallery also deals extensively on the secondary market – both selling work on consignment for clients and dealing on its own account.
