Typically an art gallery is a small business that sells the art which it exhibits. The profits made from sales should cover the cost to run the business, and, in a successful gallery, will also turn a profit. But how can a gallery, especially for contemporary jewellery, survive successfully? How do they manage their artists and sales? What struggles do they have? What can be improved in the jewellery market? And what do they think about competition in the gallery scene? These questions and more will be discussed in Klimt02 published articles during the next weeks and months. The starting point for the new series is this article, where we screen the market and gallery scene in a series of 12 interviews with some of the most renowned gallerists and biggest players shaping the contemporary jewellery market.
