Conversations on Collecting

Luiza Teixeira de Freitas & Emma Reeves



This morning on Untitled Radio, Lisbon-based Curator Luiza Teixeira de Freitas and Los Angeles-based Emma Reeves will join in conversation about a topic on every new collector’s mind: What is the difference between buying art and building a collection? They will look at examples of collections that were built within the real passion and dedication, and what it means to be both a collector and a philanthropist in the 21st Century. 


Luiza Teixeira de Freitas is an independent curator working from Lisbon, involved in a variety of independent projects. Recent exhibitions include: El que camina al lado, Travesía Cuatro (Madrid and Gudalajara 2016) ‘An Infinite Conversation’ (Museu Berardo, Lisbon 2014); ‘Apestraction’ by Damián Ortega (Freud Museum, London, 2013); ‘Like Tears in Rain’ (Palácio das Artes, Porto, 2010); ‘The Moon is an Arrant Thief’ (David Roberts Art Foundation, London, 2010). She is also actively involved with artists’ books and independent publishing projects, as well as being the curator for a number of private collections. She is a trustee at the Chisenhale Gallery in London and a strategic advisor for Delfina Foundation, London.


Emma Reeves has an extensive background as a Creative Strategist working across fashion, art, film and media in the print, digital and live space.

She is currently working as a freelance consultant based in Los Angeles.
