For the fifth year running, Power Talks presents influential art-world figures discussing their projects and ideas in the context of the Art Toronto 2010 fair.
Thea Westreich: “Breaking from the Pack: Collecting with Individuality and Distinction”
Thea Westreich is the founder of Thea Westreich Art Advisory Services, a private consultancy to individuals building fine art collections. Since 1982, Westreich has advised private collectors throughout the U.S., working with clients to build collections focused variously on Impressionism, American, Modern, and Contemporary Art. Westreich has curated private collections in specific media such as video and film, vintage photography and works on paper in addition to the more traditional genres of painting and sculpture. Westreich and her husband and business partner, Ethan Wagner, have also produced book and edition projects with artists such as Sophie Calle, Mike Kelley, Martin Kippenberger, Richard Prince, Rirkrit Tiravanija, Keith Tyson, and Christopher Wool, along with upcoming publications with Ryan Gander and Philippe Parreno.
