A to Z with Collector Anita Zabludowicz

PADDLE 8
By Sarah P. Hanson
Collector and contemporary art patron Anita Zabludowicz in her London home, in front of Anthony Green's mixed-media work "Christopher Williams," 2011. Portrait by David Bebber.
At this point, Anita Zabludowicz should probably receive an attendance award for her clockwork—but hardly rote or jaded—appearances at key art events around the globe: Miami, Basel, Venice, and more. Since then, their holdings have grown to warrant a second home: the open-to-the-public Zabludowicz Collection, housed in a 19th-century former Methodist chapel in North London, which celebrated its 20th anniversary this past spring. ...the collection is an expression of Zabludowicz’s commitment to making sure that through her support, artists, particularly young ones (who she thinks of as her “art family),” are given space to grow and mature.
