There's a big difference between viewing art in a gallery and viewing it in someone's home. The first option lends itself to detached study, while art hung on a living room wall often comes hand-in-hand with a human story and personal history. It's an intimate experience few art lovers get to enjoy.
This Art Month, a new exhibition, Collectors' Space, will blur the line between these two formats. Held at May Space in Waterloo, the exhibition plucks art from the homes of artists and curators and opens it up to public viewing.
