Collection building

Unlike private collections that are built purely on subjective personal taste, art acquisitions by companies, foundations and private institutions are motivated by patrimonial aims and specific "corporate" objectives. These can be part of an institutional strategy, external or internal communication, national or international development.

To meet the criteria for originality that will define the collection and ensure optimal recognition and exposure, such acquisition policies are often based on the commission of exclusive works by living artists.

Jérôme et Emmanuelle de Noirmont are well aware of all the inner workings of the international world of contemporary art. They have maintained close relationships with the many artists they spent time with during their 20 years of gallery management and with those they worked closely with in confidence and friendship.

Since they are no longer tied to any artist by representation agreements, they can now advise these entities in their choice with a total independence of mind and neutrality, which is not the case with galleries. They are able to work with all artists, regardless of the countries they work in and the galleries that represent them.

Noirmontartproduction can assist companies and new institutions at once with their strategy, with the selection of artists that are capable of meeting their expectations to best represent the identity they are looking for, and with the completion of their collection. Building an institutional collection is a long process divided into several phases done in a spirit of total discretion, integrity and confidentiality. First, the objectives must be defined by listening carefully to those commissioning the work and discussing the direction and the size they want to give to the collection. Once these objectives are fixed, the acquisition phase and the commission of works begin. Noirmontartproduction offers its expert advice on artistic choice, guarantee of authenticity, logistics (insurance, transport, import…) and conservation. Noirmontartproduction also offers fiscal and legal studies for both the acquisition of the works and for putting together the structure housing the collection.
