Deep inside The Washington Post’s online chat with two of its interiors writers and Allison Marvin, owner of DC-area art consultantcy Sightline, Marvin makes this interesting comment about a new source for Chinese Contemporary Art:
Washington, D.C.: If I’m interested in art from foreign countries, for example, contemporary works from Asia, would u have access to those markets?
Allison Marvin: Yes, in fact, I have a fantastic, new resource for Chinese contemporary art (not through a gallery, but rather direct from the artists’ studios in China). Its a resource that’s open to professionals in the art world, like myself, and their clients. You should contact me, and I can show you the artworks that are listed so far. It hasn’t really gone public yet, but it will soon. The artists are AMAZING.
The comment raises two interesting questions: A) What is this new service and does anyone have insight into it? and, B) Is there really this kind of demand for Chinese Contemporary Art in the US?
