About the lecturer:
Alain Servais, the Belgian businessman, is a collector with almost 25 years of experience. He was one of the first who started collecting digital art and supporting young digital artists by offering a residency program in his The Loft artspace in Brussels. Alain spends most of his leisure time visiting museums, biennials, galleries, and art fairs for sharing his knowledge of art then, inter alia. He opened The Loft in 2000. There, he holds annual exhibitions of works from the Servais Family Collection. The collection has one notable distinction: there are no paintings.
