Going Public – The Napoleone Collection
Going Public: International Art Collectors in Sheffield returns to the Graves Gallery this summer with highlights from one of Europe’s finest private collections of contemporary art.
With her first acquisition in the mid-1990s, Valeria Napoleone established a collection with a singular purpose; to champion the work of women artists and redress the gender imbalance she saw within the art world. Spanning painting and sculpture through to photography and installation, Napoleone’s remarkable collection has gone on to represent some of most pioneering female artists of the past 20 years.
Discover a diverse array of work from the collection by artists including Mai-thu Perret, Joanne Greenbaum and Margherita Manzelli.
See Valeria talking about her approach to collecting in our new film created expecially for the exhibition:
