6 Rules for the Entrepreneurial Collector by Sylvain Levy.

Building art collections has always been a diverse and a personal adventure. Today we can add a new profile to the different types of collectors: the entrepreneurial collector.

Original article: 6 Rules for the Entrepreneurial Collector https://blog.vastari.com/the-entrepreneurial-collector-sylvain-levy-dsl/

All the fields of our society are impacted by individuals who has invested in changing history, not just making money. Elon Musk, Bill Gates, Steve Jobs and Jeff Bezos are among these entrepreneurs focused on change.

How can art collectors be inspired by Elon Musk’s disruptive thinking? Below, I’ll share 6 points that should always be considered by the entrepreneurial collector.

1. A collection needs a vision

Any entrepreneur wishing to make it big must first put everything into their vision. They must believe in the project before anyone else does. They must love the brand before anyone else starts to. In the words of Nobel Laurate Dennis Gabor, “The future cannot be predicted, but futures can be invented.”

As for us [at DSL], our vision is to build a timely and timeless collection with a very strong cultural identity. We can only achieve this goal by being clear, authentic and giving a soul to a collection

2. A collection must always be on the move, aiming for the stars with feet on the ground

In a six-year period, Elon Musk accomplished what can be considered a titanic entrepreneurial crusade. He founded SpaceX in 2002 and Tesla Motors in 2003, both companies achieving their first major victories in 2008.

As for a collection it should always greatly challenge its time by the choice of collected works but also by how those works want to impact the audience and the collector..

Dslcollection is constantly surfing on the wave of Chinese contemporary art and the wave of technology. We were among the first ones, to be be present on internet since 2005, to have 2D and 3D museums, a second life museum in 2012 and today a virtual museum.

3. Don’t let failure defeat you

Musk does have several failed attempts to his name. Not every idea that he’s pursued has been an instant success. The first three launches at SpaceX were failures, and the Tesla Roadster took three years to become commercially viable even after the engineering was already foolproof.

It means for a collector to risk failure by constantly challenging the status quo or collecting works out of their comfort zone.

Unfortunately more and more collectors, because of basing their collections on investment criteria, prefer to play it safe

By focussing on China, we [DSL] have deliberately positioned ourselves out of our comfort zone

4. Craziness is an important part of an entrepreneurial culture

Yes, Elon Musk’s ideas are crazy. But so were Steve Jobs’s ideas, Bill Gates’s ideas, Benjamin Franklin’s ideas.

As for us, we built a collection in 2005 which only focussed on Chinese contemporary art – when we live 12.000km from China, we do not speak Chinese and there was not any institution validation.At the time, many would have considered this to be a crazy idea.

We had to think outside of the box and invent new ways to have access to the works (especially by using WeChat to stay informed!)

5. Criticism and self reflection

Elon solicits criticism and seeks out his critics to converse with them. This shows how important self-reflection can be to help one grow.

A collection should always interact with its audience and the art eco -system surrounding it. Sharing through social networks, and being open to feedback is an inspiring way to make a collection always lively and relevant.

Today Dslcollection has more than 31,000 followers on Linkedin with whom a dialogue is established through daily posts

6. A breakthrough innovation, it is rarely one little thing. It’s usually a whole bunch of things that collectively amount to a huge innovation

A collection should live in the context of the world in which it is built. To be innovative is not just about collecting emerging artists. It is also about harmoniously bridging humanities, art and science. That is the sense of the dslcollection project we have built the past 13 years.

Conclusion

Musk’s passionate obsession is an inspiration for anyone wanting to achieve something extraordinary. His focus, discipline and style are powerful antidotes against the mediocrity and complacency that creep up after routine settles in.

If you have a vision to transform a whole industry,if you are one of those who doesn’t like to play it safe, then there is a lot you can learn from Elon Musk, even as an art collector or art industry professional.

WHAT TO COLLECT # 111. Marina De Caro

Born in 1961 in Buenos Aires, Argentina

Lives and works in Buenos Aires, Argentina

Body, behavior and space; intuition, sensitivity, and perception; experience and knowledge: these are the keywords of Marina De Caro’s work. De Caro develops her poetics from the field of drawing towards the realms of sculpture and performance. Her spatial and action-based works often incorporate soft wearable sculptures especially designed to invite the viewer/performer to experience an unpredictable regard on the every day, on bodily and social behavior and norms. In her drawings and experiences, De Caro disrupts the given, abruptly. A most refined and irreverent master in the use of color, her works also unfold as delicately poetic spatial entities that usually envelop the viewer in a particular novel ambiance and experience.

ABOUT DIVERSITY IN ART INDUSTRY

“The more diversity you have, the faster you are able to get the right answer…” – Kerry McCarthy.

When I read interviews with people like Thelma Golden, I am not afraid to achieve new goals.

img_4265
As someone from the far country, I am responsive to the diversity in my industry. For all the time I am looking for ways to work in a foreign land with native and multicultural people. I became more loyal, more tolerant and more open-minded for last five years for the laborious time I moved and studied a new language.a01b17eae23e2a16f8d8186fc1b9a87b
Thelma’s bio shows that we can learn not only from schools but mutual experience and nonverbal connections with objects. I agreed with her.
With a time I noticed that a comprehensive search strategy based on the specific needs of museums would increase the quality of the museum services, bring a different cultural look to the exhibitions and create an art field that people want to see in the modern art institutions. I am sure; there are a lot of multilingual and multiracial professionals who look farther the market and able to contribute the culture.

According to a Thelma Golden interview, that a critical part of curatorial duties to be as an active co-conspirator with artists, reflected in me. The same cultural language will make it more comfortable and awake new opportunities for all sides of the conversation to what the art future may bring.

“We are equal in how we should be treated. Every race and gender is equal in this sense, but we are all different – and, that is a beautiful thing.” -James Michael Sama

Inspiring day to all!

WHAT TO COLLECT # 105. SKY KIM

SKY KIM

Born in Seoul, Korea, she received her M.F.A at Pratt Institute, has exhibited all over the US and internationally, and has collected a National Museum of Contemporary Art’s North Korean Art Competition Award and a Pratt Institute Art Grant. Her work has been exhibited at the Toronto Art Fair, GLAAD Art Auction, DUMBO Arts Festival, the Gwangju Biennale and has been reviewed in multiple publications including The Boston Globe, The Philadelphia Inquirer, The Washington Post and the Arts Observer.SkyKim_2

Kim has described her work as “meticulous, labor-intensive watercolor paintings/drawings (that) is at once abstract, anatomical, spiritual and sensual.” Influenced by her spiritual belief in reincarnation, there is a meditative, “wheel of life” aspect to her creative process. According to an interview with The Hawk, Kim is quoted as saying, “After I understood reincarnation, my art changed. I started using repetition, a lot of circles, wiggly lines; a lot of layers overlapping. That’s how I see life.” It seems that Kim’s efforts have not gone unnoticed. In a review published on the website Arte Fuse, author Daniel Gauss observes, “the ever-repeating patterns are a type of surrogate for the eternal. They become a type of idealized concept we can superimpose on a universe of decay and decomposition.”

5 tips for Artists How to make a statement about Abstract art a better understanding​

“The Abstract is not for lazy people.”627A1798

Five questions you can ask yourself to gain a better understanding of your abstract piece and so on to write about it:

– Does anything “jump out” at me? 

People often feel confused when they don’t see objects they can recognize. Let the meaning come out. If you have a particular manifest, please, share your own experience with people.

“Who are you?
Are you in touch with all of your darkest fantasies?
Have you created a life for yourself where you can experience them?
I have. I am fucking crazy.
But I am free.”
― Lana Del Rey

– What mood detected with your work? 

Let the art do the talking with people. Give your translation to the colors, shapes, and materials. Do they have common psychological characteristics or your own?

– Does it make you think about anything? Will it be thoughtful for the gallerist or adviser?

Abstract art is a blending of art and logic that forces humans to enter, feel or produce action. For example, I can say about someone art, – ” My thoughts go whirling and speeding into a world that is different and a little scary. I want to run away from my self and labeled reality.”

– How does it make feel your close relative?

Art has to be studied. It has to give a high emotional or educational response to viewers. Get around three to five “keywords” about your work from friends and family.

– What did the customer would say about the piece?

Please, remember that knowing the background of the Artist, why and when he or she created the work can help in understanding what the art means. Add your bio or navigation to the work period.

A few ”cliches” that add the Artist to the category of Abstract.

An abstract artist may attempt to mix representations of feelings, dreams, ideas, stories, or philosophies, their own or those of others, into their art.

An abstract artist may attempt (the impossible) to create without allowing feelings, dreams, ideas, etc. into their work—to be “automatic,” almost like a robot under the command of an army of neurons.

An abstract artist may have an agenda—they may want to move you to tears, to disgust, to prayer, or thought, or smiles, or action.

An abstract artist may attempt (the impossible) to be an entirely neutral vessel, as transparent as possible, for you to imagine your agenda into their work as you view it, hear it, witness it, or even participate in it.
