SZ | Advisory guides private clients through the process of procurement through tailored consultations, site and studio visits, private viewings, gallery tours, international auctions, and budgeting strategies. The team travels extensively along the circuit of international art fairs, surveying the landscape of several regions regularly.
We offer strategic partnerships in developing and managing nascent and existing corporate art collections. We curate shared and non-traditional spaces including hotels, lobbies, building facades and corporate galleries. Examples of past projects include large-scale mural commissions and immersive activations of retail environments.
SZ | Advisory provides art advisory services to individuals, corporations, attorneys, trust officers, and insurance companies in the areas of collection management, insurance, valuations, resale, auctions, installation, curation, framing, shipping, conservation / restoration, market research, and investment potential.
Our relationship with collectors and institutions allows for quick and discreet placement of works while maximizing full value. We assist with appraisal services compliant with Uniform Standards of Appraisal Practice, the Internal Revenue Service for US Residents, and General Data Protection Rules for Europeans for a variety of intended uses, including non-cash charitable contributions (artworks donated to museums/institutions), insurance replacement value, equitable distribution, market value, and estate tax. Upon request, we can handle all aspects of the donation process including locating a donee institution and coordinating transfer of artwork.
The SZ | Advisory team has used our expertise to work with non-profit arts organizations in many capacities, ranging from facilitating all aspects of benefit auctions, to orchestrating far-reaching popup exhibitions, from developing PR strategies to coordinating events to curating programmatic content.
