Connecting Collectors

You acquired the work in your collection because it intrigued you. It forced you to grow. But sometimes we outgrow the works that once challenged us. And that’s okay. ORIGEN allows you to list your collection with ease, so that your work can find its next home.

We like to call our model “passive.” That means no flash sales, no timed auctions.

For collectors, it has three steps:

  1. download origen appDownload ORIGEN’s mobile app.

Not ready to part with the work in your collection? You can still register it with ORIGEN.
