We are passionate about nurturing young and emerging artists, and dedicated to supporting the development of their careers. We do this through organising exhibitions and artist residencies, providing a platform for critical exposure and bringing artworks from the artist studio to diverse audiences. We draw inspiration from working with artists from early on in the their careers, and have grown alongside our artists many of whom we have worked with since they graduated from art school.
We have long-standing relationships with established artists and artist estates. These are being continually strengthened through organising numerous exhibitions (both commercial and institutional) over the last ten years which enhance the profile of the artist and understanding of their practice. We have a track record of placing works in both museum collections and important private collections, with consideration to long-term reputation and value.
We handle every step of the acquisition process for and on behalf of our clients, before during and after each acquisition. Our services include tailor-made analytical market reports, sourcing artworks for specific projects, as well as trusted advice on collecting, whether starting, growing or providing focus to an existing collection. After-sales support includes liaison and advising on shipping, framing, crating, insurance and methods of display. We provide consultancy with conservation and restoration, working with experts.
We work closely with individual collectors, private art foundations, institutions and philanthropic bodies on all aspects of acquisitions, curation, strategy and collection building. We bring to this a commitment to in-depth research, our cumulative experience in the industry, and access to our professional network, across institutional, commercial and academic sectors. We take a dynamic, creative and well-informed approach to our consultancy projects, working closely with both our clients and artists to get the best results.
We provide stand-alone valuations for artworks and collections on request for the de-accessioning of artworks, insurance purposes or other.
We provide philanthropic advisory services to trusts, foundations and institutions undergoing major transformational projects.
