Gagosian, the renowned global network of art galleries, known for its modern and contemporary exhibitions, has announced the launch of a private library building advisory service — led by its rare book specialist Douglas Flamm.
As part of the curation service, Flamm, a twenty-five-year veteran of his craft, will assist select clients with building out private libraries, whether as a reference collection or from scratch in the case of a new collection for a new home. The process is said to include individualized consultations that are designed to yield a bespoke list of titles.
Gagosian shared that thanks to his significant experience, Flamm “boasts unparalleled know-how in sourcing scarce and important publications, from catalogs raisonnés and museum exhibition catalogs to monographs and artist’s books, including rare and out-of-print titles as well as newer releases.”
Flamm’s expertise spans a vast range, including twentieth- and twenty-first-century artists and movements to Picasso, Abstract Expressionism, Pop art, Minimalism and more. Other areas of focus include architectural-based titles, on subjects like Art Deco, Bauhaus and Modernism.
Collectors interested in utilizing Flamm’s services are encouraged to make their inquires through contact info found on Gagosian’s official site.
