Heart for Art are worth checking out next week if you are heading to New York for Frieze Art Week. Set up in 2017 by Katya Leibholz
Heart for Art is a New York City based arts events and creative consulting company. They are most know for their gallery tours (Tuesdays through Sundays) and their art-related weekend events. They also work with brands and corporations to incorporate the work of contemporary artists into their collections, offices, stores, events and pop-ups. Heart for Art events show clients the work of the most talked about artists while also exposing them to the stellar work of some lesser-known artists in New York City. They believe Its critical that both of these groups are represented, as together they illustrate the current and future NYC art world.
Katya Leibholz is the founder & CEO of Heart for Art. Before starting Heart for Art she worked in numerous museums and galleries, including The Hermitage (St. Petersburg, Russia) and Friedman Benda (New York). Her goal is to highlight the work of emerging artists based in New York City while simultaneously discussing the big names in the contemporary art scene. In doing this, she hopes to illustrate the present and future of the New York City art world.
