Eye of the Collector, the upcoming, alternative art fair whose inaugural edition is now due to take place between September 8 and 11 at Two Temple Place, is launching an online viewing room to coincide with the original dates.

Accessible until May 31, the online viewing room at eyeofthecollector.com will reflect the fair’s ethos as a celebration of connoisseurship, presenting select works of art and design carefully chosen in collaboration with participating galleries such as Thomas Gibson Fine Art, Kallos Gallery, Michael Hoppen Gallery, Dickinson, Gallery FUMI, Tornabuoni Art and BASTIAN among others.

Works will be presented in a format that juxtaposes contemporary, modern and ancient to create new dialogues and suggest new collecting pathways.

Eye of the Collector was founded by Nazy Vassegh, a London-based advisor with over 25 years’ experience in the international art world, including roles at Sotheby’s and the Masterpiece art fair, which she helped to critical and commercial success in her role as chief executive. 

“We want to support our exhibitors during this difficult time and offer them an additional platform that also allows collectors the opportunity to participate at a time when they would have been visiting our inaugural edition,” says Vassegh. “We are not charging exhibitors for this service and this is in addition to our planned event that is now scheduled for 8-11 September 2020.”
