Buying art is a complex process wherein contextual factors, market reality and the client’s personal interests and aesthetics merge. After extensive research is completed, including a discussion of the client’s short list with other prominent art curators, the team at CAAD filters the findings and recommendations considering the pieces’ appraisal and condition report as well as the collection fit and its relevancy in the history of contemporary art.

Valentina regularly travels and visits museums, galleries, private collections, artist studios, institutions, art fairs and biennials with clients or on their behalf.
