Special Event

Claudia Chan Shaw @ MCA on The Rocks

Explore what, why and how we accumulate, save, curate or hoard with a panel of compulsive collectors including Claudia Chan Shaw (ABC’s Collectors), artist and Wizard of Oz enthusiast David Capra and Curator Glenn Barkley – who has curated Volume One: MCA Collection and has a number of personal collections himself.

Claudia Chan Shaw is an author, photographer, broadcaster, public speaker, has curated a number of fashion exhibitions and contributes to design and collecting publications. She is the co-director for the internationally acclaimed Australian fashion label, Vivian Chan Shaw and has been seen on Australian screens as co-host and presenter on ABC TV’s popular program, Collectors.

Her book Collectomania, exploring the world of collectors and their obsessions, was released at the end of 2012. Claudia celebrates collections both strange and beautiful and shares secrets about her own love affair with everything from tin robots to contemporary art.
