ART OF The New Antiquarians

September 8, 2023 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

$85

Young collectors exist! A point made beautifully clear in The New Antiquarians, the stunning new release by Michael Diaz-Griffith.

The once rarefied world of antiques is bursting open thanks to a new generation of collectors. The New Antiquarians features twenty-two young connoisseurs whose spirited interiors exemplify unorthodox approaches to living with history. Hailing from across the United States and Britain, they brazenly blend the old with the new, embrace anachronism and pastiche, employ serious knowledge with humor and wit, and consider vintage and historical objects through the lens of contemporary values. The New Antiquarians is an exuberant entry point into the world of antiques, highlighting one-of-a-kind collections and the single-minded collectors whose stories suggest compelling new ways of living with the past.

Meet the author, receive your signed copy of The New Antiquarians, and enjoy refreshments during a post-talk reception. This ART OF event will inspire you to collect, or at least begin dreaming about it! After all: three of anything makes a collection, but a collecting practice can be ignited, quietly, by a single bewitching object.

Michael Diaz-Griffith is an art historian, designer, and Executive Director & COO of the Design Leadership Network. Prior to joining the DLN, Diaz-Griffith served as Executive Director of Sir John Soane’s Museum Foundation and as Associate Executive Director of The Winter Show, America’s most prestigious and longest-running art and antiques fair.
