"Is there such a thing as a collecting philosophy...Was this patronage of the kind that Kings and Emperors practiced; one that was paternal and less discriminatory? Or shall I swing the way of others who feel strongly that collecting is an art and collecting art objects should surely be an art in itself?...

Why should the bargains struck affect the value of the collection or how I perceive it? Why should I allow these historians to obfuscate my experience with their dismissive summations? Why indeed. And why not take care of Dewey as well? Dewey does not object to the museum itself as much as he objects to the reduction of art to the objects and performances found in museums and concert halls, and aesthetic experience to the occasions engendered by them.
Dewey's rejection of the aesthetics of collecting may also be tied to his distaste for the elitism of high profile art and antiques collecting."

Excerpt from "Marble Palace", an essay by V Sanjay Kumar.

We are thrilled to announce the launch of TAKE COLLECTOR at Art Basel HK, 14. We are revisiting a theme from 2012 as we feel that art collecting is something that could benefit from further introspection and study. The issue will be a reading of the collecting practices of several influential collectors of art from South Asia including Abdelmonem Bin Eisa Alserkal | Akshay Chudasama | Arjun Sawhney | Darshan Shah | Dara Mehta | Dattaraj Salgaocar | Dolly and Lovraj Talwar | Dr Dick Quan | Dr. Oei Hong Djien | Harsh Goenka | Lekha Poddar | Radhika Chopra | Raj Salgaocar | Rita and Yogesh Mehta | Rudy Akili | Samir Modi | Sandhya Jain - Patel | Shalini Passi | Sunil Hirani | Sunita Choraria | Taimur Hassan | The Sheikh Faisal bin Qassim Al Thani Museum | Tom Tandio | Uli Sigg | Waswo X. Waswo | Walter Vanhaerents.
