Our clients comments

“I quickly felt, from the first email contact, that behind the 3 words ART TALK WRITE , there were above all two people listening, who do not seek to sell a service at all costs but who question the person first about their expectations. At the request of an assessment of my current site, I found that listening was coupled with an obvious professionalism and that things were stated and argued clearly, which was really appreciated. Finally, during our telephone conversation to explain this assessment, I appreciated the finesse and sensitivity of my interlocutor. Confidence was already there.” Cécile B., Visual artist, Grenoble (38), France, 2019.

“Thank you so much for your work! It was very enlightening and accurate! I’m thinking of coming back to you soon.” Sylvie M., Sculptor-­ceramist, Chatou (78), France, 2019.

“I’m delighted with this interview that has opened up perspectives. And it feels good to be accompanied…” Anne-­Laure H.B., Visual artist, Varces (38), France, 2019.

Art Talk Write project background

Art Talk Write is the continuation of a successful collaboration between ourselves, that started as a chance conversation at Galerie Sépia in 2015 and developed into a gallery co-managing project. As arts professionals we share a love of contemporary art and a commitment to working with artists and colleagues, alongside an interest in language, and the central role it plays in the art world. We wanted to develop this partnership by combining both our skills in a new, France wide project. We continue to draw upon this initial collaborative experience, alongside our independent work as gallerist, arts writer and arts professionals.
