Guilded welcomes enquiries for assistance with sourcing art for your project or space. Our focus is on material or process-led artist-designer-makers.
There can be a number of reasons you may want to consider support with sourcing:
A client of Guilded in the Far East had long admired the work of ‘living national treasure’ Olga de Amaral. Olga de Amaral is a Colombian textile and visual artist known for her large-scale abstract works made with fibres and covered in gold and/or silver leaf.
Her work is represented in over 40 museums internationally including the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
Charlotte was developing a major bespoke installation for the client at the time, who also had long admired de Amaral’s work and was considering purchasing a piece by the artist. At their request, Charlotte set to research and familiarising herself with de Amaral’s catalogue and representative galleries in order to be in a position guidance and make recommendations. In so doing Charlotte spoke to de Amaral’s daughter Valentina who today manages her mother’s body of work. This, combined with more extensive research identified key works and intelligence on pricing which served to ensure the client achieved their goal before prices increased worldwide.
Charlotte negotiated and procured the works for her client and arranged shipping to the client’s residence in Thailand.
Below you will see a selection of sourced art works.
Art sourced for clients is remunerated through purchase to a maximum fee percentage, with the client not paying any more for the work acquired.
