Collecting art is something we're passionate about.
We've worked with individuals, consortia and corporate enterprises to advise on all the various areas related to art collections. Whether indigenous art, works on paper (limited edition prints or photographs), craft and design objects, sculpture or paintings, the purchase of art indicates a great deal about who you are and how you present yourself - particularly in business, where a collection can reflect the ethos and character of your business practice. Furthermore the display of art enhances the work environment for both you and your clients.
We can assess your collection and advise on consolidation through the acquisition of new works or de-accessioning of existing works. GAP can also develop strategies to enhance the way art is used in your work environment by making it more accessible through the production of information booklets, such as brochures or catalogues or through interpretative wall labels.
We encourage companies to work in partnership with artists to produce site-specific installations or work directly in the business environment to produce art amongst your clients and staff. We also work with local government, private clients and corporations to commission artists to produce public art for indoor and outdoor spaces.
An Acquisitions Policy can be an extremely useful document, clarifying the reasons you wish to collect and your long-term goals in this field, but also importantly determining the kind of art you should purchase. We can develop this with you and help to implement it.
GAP can also work with architects and interior designers to assist in the purchase of works for their clients.
