Quebec: Commercial Galleries and Auction Houses collaborate

Following the trend of commercial galleries collaborating with the auction houses (lest the auction houses overtake them – see VoCA posts HERE and HERE ), in Montreal, the Contemporary Art Galleries Association (AGAC) is going to be organizing an exhibition between its members and Ritchies Auction House.

Entitled A suivre…, the first exhibit is perfect for new collectors, as it will focus on the relatively affordable medium of works on paper. Handily, it will parallel the art fair PAPIER 08, which will take place in Montreal from October 23 to 26, 2008, and which is also organized by AGAC.
