All collectors have one thing in common: they are passionate about their specific area of interest. No matter what the object of their interest, they will go to extraordinary lengths to track down and acquire a specific example.
One of the difficulties that collectors face in the long term is what to do with their collections. Families are often not interested in the collection of treasured possessions that one day they may inherit. Judith Rutherford will talk about her journey as a collector and the decisions she has made regarding her own private collection. She will also share some of the experiences that she has had advising and assisting other collectors.
Ms Judith Rutherford is an independent scholar in the field of Chinese textiles and the founder of the Textile Study Group of The Asian Arts Society of Australia (TAASA). She is the Immediate Past President of The Asian Arts Society of Australia and is now an Honorary Life Member.
Judith has lectured extensively in Australia, Hong Kong, Korea, and the USA. In 2011 Judith was invited by the Academy of Art in Hangzhou to lecture at a conference focusing on China’s Tangible and Intangible Heritage “The History and Reality – International Conference on Cultural Heritage Preservation, Management, and Development”.
