In the twelfth episode of Collect Wisely we are speaking with Howard Rachofsky. February 8, 2019.
"The best way to see an artist's work is quietly in a gallery where you can actually have a conversation around that work and with a gallerist, and I think this is maybe a little old school, but it’s sort of the way I learned along the way, and what was challenging and stimulating to me."
In the eleventh episode of Collect Wisely we are speaking with Pablo Sepúlveda. February 5, 2019
"We have to learn to see how each artist has been developing, throughout his or her career, that’s one thing. The other, is that in my collection I basically buy the pieces of art that I am happy living with. Art should make you happy, you have to buy the pieces of art that you like, but they have to have a relationship between one and the other."
In the tenth episode of Collect Wisely we are speaking with Tiffany Zabludowicz. December 4, 2018
"Art's so crucial, always, especially in moments where the world's in a bit of a crisis. Pushing what art is? Well, art is a conversation, when I see artists who are making something that's pushing the conversation forward then that's what's exciting to me."
In this episode of Collect Wisely we sat down with Manuel de Santaren. November 13, 2018
"I will tell a new collector, a young collector, think about what makes your heart sing when you watch something on a screen, and let’s make a list of what you respond to, and then, let’s see which artists are doing work that has a reference to those things that give you goosebumps and take your breath away, and you begin there." - Manuel de Santaren
The 8th episode of Collect Wisely features Jill and Peter Kraus. July 26, 2018
“It’s not what you read in books, you have to learn to see, that’s something that I think really great collectors over the generations, not just contemporary art, have learned, they’ve learned to look” - Jill Kraus
The 7th episode of Collect Wisely features sisters, Monique and Myriam Vanneschi, interviewed during the 49th edition of Art Basel. June 14, 2018
"The art world back then in the 1970s was much smaller and really people bought art out of a passion for it, and so, what we see today. That didn’t happen at all back then."- Myriam Vanneschi
For the 6th episode of Collect Wisely we interviewed Ron Pizzuti. May 24, 2018
"Go to an art fair, preferably in New York, and to leave your wallet at home, and don’t even think about buying anything until you can figure out what you like, and what direction you want to go.”- Ron Pizzuti
In the 5th episode of Collect Wisely we spoke with Rodney Miller. May 23, 2018
"There’s always good work out there, and part of the fun is quite frankly looking and discovering new artists, and so money is a barrier on some levels, but it’s not a barrier to being able to live with objects that are unique, objects that are beautiful, and objects that have meaning.”- Rodney Miller
In this episode of Collect Wisely, we spoke with Paul Marks live from Frieze New York. May 2, 2018
"Things that we don’t quite understand currently, maybe those artists are just functioning fifty years ahead of all of us, and maybe it’s going to take fifty years for everyone to figure what they were thinking or what was on their mind. I use that on my research in medicine, to say let’s not wait fifty years, let’s try to do what the artists does and see if we can invent the future now.” - Dr. Paul Marks
Our third episode of Collect Wisely was recorded live at Frieze New York with Marieluise Hessel Artzt, May 2, 2018
"The truth is that I am getting more out of it than I can give, that’s the truth because I couldn’t live with all the works but seeing others, having contact with students and curators has enriched my life in immense ways." - Marieluise Hessel Artzt
The second episode of Collect Wisely was recorded live at Frieze New York with Greg Miller, May 2, 2018
"This art world is an art world that moves at hyper speed these days. We all are used to swiping screens from one to the next and giving them a few seconds to a minute at most of attention. Find your moments to slow down and figure out where you can go deeply with art as opposed to trying to be everywhere at all times and know everything at all times.” - Greg Miller
In the inaugural episode of the Collect Wisely podcast, Sean Kelly spoke with collector J. Tomilson Hill, April 24, 2018
"There are some artists that are an acquired taste, where you actually have to really work at it. And then there are other artists where it’s much easier, and I’ve often said that I look for a bloody nose, sometimes a punch in the stomach, but I think that’s the emotional reaction, it doesn’t have to be razors that are actually cutting you, it can be emotional."- Tom Hill
