Contemporary Art Advisory was founded in 2014 by Martina Alemani and Laura Brignoli to provide advisory services to Contemporary art collectors, helping them to navigate the tangled art world.
Martina and Laura work closely with their clients to understand their passions, goals for their collections and acquisition budget. Upon definition of these criteria, market demand, and pricing history, the research of artists begins.
Contemporary Art Advisory provides research, professional advice regarding collection management, installation, shipping and framing services to their clients.
