Not sure about this, but it looks interesting if you are a collector of contemporary art. Received this the other day from the ArtNexus list.

You may not have heard about us: Independent Collectors
Hi, weâ€™re collecting collectors …
Independent Collectors is an online platform specifically designed for collectors of contemporary art. It is a protected, non-commercial space for collectors to find likeminded people from all over the world, to exchange information, share insights, to arrange meetings at fairs, to discuss the market or to upload and present their private collections.
Are collectors really willing to share?
The platform was launched in June 2008, despite the rumour that collectors didnâ€™t want to talk to each other. Within just over one year, we count 1,832 collectors of contemporary art from 67 nations who are presenting 5,746 artworks in 594 private exhibitions, which probably makes Independent Collectors the biggest online exhibition of private contemporary art collections on the internet. The current featured exhibition for example is a selection of minimalist and conceptual art from the 60â€™s and 70â€™s, presented by the American collector Michael Lowe.
Why Independent Collectors? Independent from what?
Up to now galleries, museums, auction houses, biennials, curators and art magazines have been considered as the â€˜supply sideâ€™ of the art market. They have been playing a major role in defining trends, controlling most art transactions. This is currently changing.
Independent Collectors connects the “autonomous multitude” â€“ collectors who often don’t feel like they’re organized players. We want to make it easier for collectors worldwide to find likeminded people, share opinions, set trends and make their voices heard.
