Episode 236

30 minutes

Whether you collect for love or money, how do you start and who do you ask? At the moment people are dismayed that art is bought not to hang above the fireplace but to be kept in a huge Swiss freeport until a more biddable buyer is found. Robert Bound meets London art adviser Kathlene Fox-Davies, we speak to our panelists from the recent Monocle Quality of Life Conference in Vienna – in which we asked about collecting – and meet Marine Tanguy, who’s trying to get collectors to invest in artists rather than art.

Kathlene Fox-Davies is a London-based art adviser and private dealer with a string of clients, some old hands in the art world and some bright young things who need a word to the wise. How do you start a conversation in a contemporary-art gallery? How do you pass the test of being allowed into the inner sanctum? Fox-Davies tells Robert Bound.

Investing in an artist: Marine Tanguy

Cover art for The Monocle Culture Show

Marine Tanguy is a gallerist turned art agent who last year launched MTArt, a company that represents a new generation of international young artists. Tanguy doesn’t believe in just investing in one work, she thinks that we should be investing in the artist. Culture producer Holly meets her in the apartment of one of those artists, Anna Fafaliou.
