As a luxury real estate marketing professional, do you have clients who are collectors of contemporary art? The more you understand about this category of art the more you will be able to connect and relate with those who appreciate it. The more these clients sense your connection on this subject the more likely they will be to refer you to their collector friends because you speak “their language”.
Recently, we happened to sit next to an up and coming contemporary Los Angeles artist on our flight to the East Coast. We took an interest in Cole Sternberg’s work and wanted to share it with you. Cole has been challenging society with his works for the last ten years, blending compelling visuals with issues ranging from pop culture to human rights to the environment. Schooled in the law and a published author on international law issues, Sternberg’s insight into his subject matter gives a unique twist rarely seen in the arts.
We were impressed by Cole’s take on the deterioration of quality journalism where the shock value of stories supersedes the truth. “The scary element is that this mentality, previously reserved for reality TV and celebrity culture, has crossed over to real issues, according to Cole.
On Thursday, January 27th 2011, art collector Normandie Keith will open her home to unveil her latest acquisition, a massive room installation by Cole Sternberg. The Content is Bleeding Through is an installation with many layers meant to challenge the progression of media and society, questioning the celebrity manufacturing system of the media and the concentration of the news on falsities and trivialities. After collecting multiple paintings by Sternberg, Keith commissioned Cole to take over an external space on her property to produce his piece.
"Cole is one of the most important artists of his generation and I'm so happy to be able to live with his amazing installation. It provides a sociological snapshot of where we are at, both disturbing and beautiful," states Keith.
Take the time to learn about what your clients are interested in. When you are interested in what matters most to them they will be more interested in promoting you.
