Collecting art has the power to transform a space, create conversation, and challenge aesthetics. SZ | Advisory guides private clients in building a collection through tailored consultations, site and studio visits, museum and gallery tours, as well as, international auctions and art fairs. Our focus is to educate and inspire; collecting, then, becomes an experience, rather than a transaction. We work to safeguard the collector from the intransparencies inherent to the industry as the clients’ representative.
Art has the potential to turn a site into a destination. We offer strategic partnerships in developing and managing nascient and existing corporate art collections, which ultimately function as an asset. From a financial standpoint, funds are better allocated toward pieces with proven market value and investment potential. It behooves corporations to accrue financial capital, while earning cultural capital in supporting the arts and giving back to the community.
In an effort to activate shared and non-traditional spaces, we curate hotels, lobbies, building facades, public gardens, and corporate galleries. Examples of our projects include large-scale mural commissions and immersive installations within retail environments.
SZ | Advisory provides global art advisory services to individuals, corporations, attorneys, trustees, and family offices in the following areas of collection management:

In both domestic and commercial settings, we take pride in the projects we have completed alongside established names in the Architecture and Interior Design trades. We act as a resource to designers in order to further complement their practice. We offer selections that can be integrated as functional artworks in structural plans. Keeping the designers’ aesthetic at the forefront, we work together to satisfy the clients, while creating cohesive environments that are dynamic, immersive and beautiful.
