“Chic and Knowledgeable, with a serious eye for beautiful things, art consultant Arianne Levene means business.”
Polly Glass, aMuse magazine, November 2012
Since completing a Masters in Contemporary Art at the Courtauld Institute, Arianne has worked extensively within the art world, most notably at Sotheby's, UBS Wealth Management, the Dresden State Art Collections, and for Lord Rothschild. In 2006 she established her own art consultancy, New Art World, advising major collectors on international Contemporary Art with a special focus on emerging markets: China, South Asia, and the Middle East.
Arianne has curated numerous exhibitions that promote the talent of prominent contemporary international artists: 'Lost in Paradise: Du spiritual dans l'art actual' (Loft Sévigné, Paris, France, 2012) included works by five contemporary artists from India, Pakistan, Iran, Indonesia, and the Middle East; 'Rashid Rana: Paradoxe Perpetuelle' (Musée Guimet, Paris, France, 2010) an exhibition of works by the leading contemporary Pakistani artist; 'Made in Iran' (Asia House, London, UK, 2009) a group show of work by seven young contemporary artists living and working in the modern Islamic republic of Iran; and 'Face East: Contemporary Asian Portraiture' (London, UK, 2007).
In 2012 Arianne was nominated for Art Adviser of the Year at the Spear's Young Turk Awards. She has been written about extensively in the press, including the Financial Times, Art and Auction, aMuse Magazine, and The Art Newspaper.
