Since the millennium, we have seen the rise around the world of many new privately funded, publicly minded institutions. Such museums are shaping the cultural life of a city in the way state museums once did. Building an institution can take decades, and there are many considerations to take into account, from assembling a core collection, identifying the role of the institution in the community; design of state-of-the-art facilities, to putting together a patrons’ programme.
Vickery Art’s mission is to take on cultural institutions whose interests are aligned, in particular with the promotion of contemporary art from the peripheries of the mainstream art world. For example, it is currently working with Russian Art Focus, an online art periodical in the English language focussing on promoting awareness of Russian art throughout the world.
For both private individuals who are creating a future legacy by founding a new art museum, and corporations who wish to support contemporary art or invest in a corporate collection, we provide advice and practical help in putting everything together and making your vision real.
Perhaps your institution or ambitious cultural project needs a proven art world professional to fly your flag and champion your initiative for you. We support the cultural assets you are investing in with our proven expertise and skills in this field giving you on-tap, unbiased professional advice.
Vickery Art has a wealth of experience in working between cultures to foster understanding. The art world today is fully international, so it requires bridge building in different languages and nurturing awareness and respect for different national identities in the cultural space. For example, working with Russian Art Focus, we help to spread knowledge throughout the world about Russian contemporary art, bringing opportunities for international dialogues with other art world professionals and the public at large.
