May 4 – August 31, 2013

 Delving into the minds of five passionate collectors, Obsession explores what compels them to collect contemporary art. Guided by internal forces, collectors, much like artists, are drawn toward a certain aesthetic.


Whether in pursuit of style, medium, or conceptual thread, the collector plays an instrumental role in the life cycle of art, helping to propel the careers of artists they ardently believe in.

The exhibition features selected works from the collections of Eileen S. Kaminsky, Gary Lichtenstein, Ysabel Pinyol, Steve Hanson, and Micha Ziprkowski. From the seductive paintings of Daniel Turner to the intricate patchwork of Tom Fruin’s City Map, each collection is presented in a unique space and curated to evoke the collector’s taste and distinct practices. Presented in collaboration with Eileen S. Kaminsky Family Foundation (ESKFF) on Mana Contemporary’s first and sixth floors.
