I’ve been covering the art industry for nine years, and I still don’t feel like I have a clear grasp on what an art consultant does. What’s the difference between a dealer and an art consultant? Who are they? What’s their day to day like? So I asked a few private dealers, consultants and curators to talk about what they do. Everyone told me a different story.
Today’s conversation with independent curator and writer Kevin Moore is the most recent interview in the series we call, “What’s an Art Consultant?” Moore has been advising collectors for over ten years and more recently curating gallery shows. He has a Ph.D in art history from Princeton University and is currently the Artistic Director and Curator of FOTOFOCUS, Cincinnati.
