Art Collectors in Conversation
Collecting precious objects is a human urge dating back to the ancients in Babylonia, Egypt, China, India, Mesoamerica, Greece and Rome. But what compels people to collect art? How do they decide what to collect? And once they possess it, what do they do with it? This lively trio of conversations featuring Josh Heuman, The Power Plant's Curator of Education & Public Programs, with three different collectors of contemporary art.

On Saturday July 10, 2021 we are joined by presenter Rudy Adler.

Rudy Adler is an art collector and co-founder of Wealthsimple
