We constantly monitor the auction market (New-York, London, Paris, Hong-Kong), and are creating extensive analytical reports exclusively reserved to our clients. We have strong relationships with all three major auction houses. We have access to condition reports, detailed images, market intelligence to help our clients make the right and informed decision. We carry out all due diligence needed prior to bidding. We also advise our clients on buying opportunities at auction based on our extensive experience of choosing the right artwork and of developing the right bidding strategy.

Curating and Art Consulting

Moonstar advises fine arts professionals (art galleries, art fairs, auction houses, investment funds, family offices) to help them get all the benefits from a global art market impacted by profound structural changes. In that context, it is about defining better and differentiating strategies and execute those strategies in the most efficient manner. We have worked with selected players in high-end hospitality, luxury goods brands, and the real estate industry who understand that art activations can support innovative branding or marketing strategies. We have extensive experience in curating custom-tailored art exhibits, commissioned art installations,  art events, or cultural activations driven by partnerships to maximize any marketing and branding impacts.
