ART COLLECTION DEVELOPMENT
Mary Corrigall offers consultations to assist new or seasoned art collectors, corporate or museum collections, in identifying and securing appropriate acquisitions that align with their interests.
Through the production of Corrigall & Co's SA Art Market: Pricing and Patterns, and several auction analysis reports we have established an extensive database and refined understanding around the value of contemporary art. Mary Corrigall draws from this research as well as the attuned eye she developed working as one of the country's leading art critics to issue unbiased appraisals of contemporary works.
Artists seeking feedback, an engaged dialogue, or advice on how to position or re-position their practice within the wider context of the African art ecosystem are able to book studio visits with Mary Corrigall.
Mary Corrigall has developed multiple methodologies with which to undertake internal and external analyses of different kinds of arts businesses. An internal analysis is used to address and assess internal cultures, processes and identify and develop brand awareness. In mapping external conditions, Corrigall can assist organisations in identifying and exploiting their position in the broader market.
Corrigall tailors and adapts her methodologies to each client to resolve pertinent changes or challenges facing their organisation. Corrigall has assisted non-profit organisations, commercial galleries, government agencies and other creative industry bodies.
Communicating with the press and directly with the public via emails, newsletters, websites and social media is an essential part of running a gallery, museum, art institution or an artist's practice. Drawing from her 15 years experience as an art journalist Mary Corrigall assists in developing campaigns, texts, and strategies to address audiences on multiple platforms.
