We Do Stuff.
We approach every client engagement as a unique problem-solving opportunity whose solutions might include our principal practices, but could also push us into new territory. Every project is a chance to grow our areas of expertise and to engage our broad network of relationships with other artists, makers, programmers, fabricators, interior designers, and architects to solve bigger problems and design more things — from games to textiles to furniture to interior spaces, and just about anything else that you can dream up.
As art consultants, we leverage our 20+ years of experience in every aspect of the contemporary art ecosystem — studies culminating in three Masters degrees between us, hundreds of exhibitions mounted, and lessons learned and connections made through our own studio practices — to advise clients on the selection of contemporary artworks to fit any space, taste, and budget.
We Think Thoughts.
Our brains won’t stop churning when we have a problem to solve. We get super excited about creative possibilities, and feel fulfilled when we’re able to approach a problem from an unexpected angle and can channel our particular (sometimes peculiar) sensibilities toward a delightful solution. We naturally imbue our work with humor and humanity, and we pride ourselves in being friendly and approachable project partners.
But enough about us.
