Author Michael Diaz-Griffith to present Book Talk for New Release, "The New Antiquarians"

(PRINCETON, NJ) -- The Arts Council of Princeton (ACP) will present Michael Diaz-Griffith in a book talk for his new release, The New Antiquarians, as part of their ART OF series on Friday, September 8 at 5:30pm.

The once rarefied world of antiques is bursting open thanks to a new generation of collectors. The New Antiquarians features twenty-two young connoisseurs whose spirited interiors exemplify unorthodox approaches to living with history. Hailing from across the United States and Britain, they brazenly blend the old with the new, embrace anachronism and pastiche, employ serious knowledge with humor and wit, and consider vintage and historical objects through the lens of contemporary values. The New Antiquarians is an exuberant entry point into the world of antiques, highlighting one-of-a-kind collections and the single-minded collectors whose stories suggest compelling new ways of living with the past.

Michael Diaz-Griffith is an art historian, designer, and Executive Director & COO of the Design Leadership Network. Prior to joining the DLN, Diaz-Griffith served as Executive Director of Sir John Soane’s Museum Foundation and as Associate Executive Director of The Winter Show, America’s most prestigious and longest-running art and antiques fair.

At The ART OF The New Antiquarians, attendees will meet the author, receive a signed copy of The New Antiquarians, and enjoy refreshments during a post-talk reception. This event will inspire guests to collect, or at least begin dreaming about it. After all: three of anything makes a collection, but a collecting practice can be ignited, quietly, by a single bewitching object.

This event is held in partnership with Labyrinth Books. To register for the ART OF The New Antiquarians and view a full series lineup, visit artscouncilofprinceton.org.

This event is part of a series of ART OF events. Since its inception in 2022, more than 600 participants have attended ART OF events to make chocolate, dance Salsa, taste fine wine, and take a deep dive into topics ranging from horticulture to astrology. The pivot away from large galas toward more intimate fundraising events has enabled the Arts Council to truly embody its mission of building community through the arts.

The Arts Council of Princeton, a non-profit organization founded in 1967, fulfills its mission of building community through the arts by presenting a wide range of programs including public art projects, exhibitions, performances, free community cultural events, and studio-based classes and workshops. Arts Council of Princeton programs are designed to be high-quality, engaging, affordable and accessible for the diverse population in the greater Princeton region.
