La Dynamique de l´inasechement, 2012
The international art market has a complex structure; therefore, it is necessary to know how it operates to have the ability to solve successfully situations in which conflicts of interest, unforeseen expenses and new opportunities often arise. Callia Art is born in Madrid, in 2007, as an answer to the need of independent art collecting advisory.
One of the key aspects of Callia Art’s operation is the fact that it is formed by a small team, that is completed in accordance to each client’s necessities. Each operation is a new project in which the investment is optimised. In this way, the experts in each case are the most suitable ones and the operation costs are minimized.
Callia Art´s team travels to the main international art fairs every year (TEFAF, Art Basel, Frieze and FIAC). This allows the team to be at the forefront of the latest trends, private sales, auction market and to keep ongoing contact with the main experts in each area, updating their knowledge and training continuously.
Carmen Reviriego has been, for more than 25 years, a great heritage advisor. In 2007, she founded Callia Art, company with international presence, in order to advise on art collecting from an artistic, social and economic perspective.
