VIP Private Collection Tour of The Don Sanders Collection/The Modern Nude

Saturday, October 6 | 10:00am - 11:00am

Location: Private Collection

Join us for a private, behind the scenes tour of one of Houston's most important collections, The Don Sanders Collection/The Modern Nude. Amassing approximately 10,000 photographs by 150 artists, the collection sets the standard in historical numbers as a modern archive of nude female figure form photography worldwide. Works from Nobuyoshi Araki, Helmut Newton, and Inez & Vinoodh, to name a few, fill the walls of the collection which is installed salon style from floor to ceiling. The collection’s depth is further edified through the pristine care the work is given. The collection is composed of framed and unframed works in three hundred and fifty archival conservation files, each matted, and encapsulated in archival mylar sleeves. 

This event is for Texas Contemporary VIPs. To register to attend visit

Advisory: The works comprised within this collection depict the body in the nude and some of the photographs included in this collection may be perceived by some to be graphic in nature.
