THE ART OF ACQUISITIONS AND THE VALUE OF THE CONTEMPORARY CURATOR

When you consider an art curator, you tend to think beyond decorative skills or a flair for design. A curator must know and understand a vision, tap in to a deep well of knowledge, find the right piece to add to a collection, and ultimately, bring the savvy, sound, and sensible dealings of a financier to close the sale. Art, after all, is something we live with, and since a collection will define a collector’s spirit and style long after the collector is no longer, the practice of acquisition in and of itself becomes increasingly important as the truly excellent finds become ever more evasive. Today, the value of a gifted curator cannot be underestimated.

Enter Nicole Bray: the definitive contemporary art curator.

OFF THE WALL WITH LISA FROMATRZ

Monthly Correspondent for art|REAL

In her bright and airy fifth floor studio on Spring Street, Lisa Fromartz, lives and works surrounded by her dynamic and intricate sculptural installations, and her colorful and gestural paintings. Her allegiance to highly visual art with strong composition has remained constant throughout her career. Her desire to embrace her surroundings and absorb the cultural landscape in elegant abstraction is a signature note of her style. She takes the vocabulary of everyday objects and the mass media to create vibrant, exciting, and sensual works.

PUBLISHED: From High Finance to High Art: The Work of Sarah Meyohas

Monthly Correspondent for art|REAL

What if an artist traded stocks online in a gallery and visualized the moves in the market on a canvas? What if an artist created a digital currency called Bitchcoin that was backed by photography assets at a fixed exchange rate of 1 Bitchcoin to 25 square inches of photographic print? What if the artist took over the desolate Bell Labs Holmdel Complex and hired temps to pick tens of thousands rose petals to be captured as digital data? This is a mere sampling of the artwork created by the phenomenal Sarah Meyohas.

Regardless of whom you are voting for in this election, the increased focus on issues affecting women has been at an all-time high, at least in my lifetime. Whether or not Hilary makes the White House, women are indeed commanding the 2016-2017 art season, with almost all the major New York institutions celebrating female artists.
