If the 1990s and the aughts were the decades of Rockefeller- and Peggy Guggenheim-sized mega-collectors, then the 2020s are the era of the connoisseur. CULTURED’s sixth annual Young Collectors list spotlights a new generation of curious and energized art buyers who trust in their instincts and are guided by their communities. As these newcomers grow more comfortable calling themselves collectors, their investment in the arts reflects a commitment to nurturing the experimental, diverse, and aesthetically exquisite. The truth is, collecting has never been more personal.
