Herman Steyn, Co-Founder and Director of the Scheryn Art Collection will take part in a Collector Talk as part of Art Basel’s Conversations Programme. The topic of the Conversation will center around How to Buy ArtThe talk will be from 5pm – 6pm on Friday 15 June in Hall 1.1 in the Auditorium, 10 Messeplatz, Basel

More specifically the discussion will look to bring together views from both the buyer and the seller on what to look for when buying art: What are some of the common and/or unusual factors in acquiring artworks from emerging, mid-career, established artist and artist estates? When acquiring artworks, what commitments are made, and to whom? How to balance ‘buyer’s remorse” and impulsive-buys, along with trusting intuition and negotiating codes of ethics will also be discussed[1].
