Sorry for any errors on the tips & how to pages. I'm doing this fast.
Remember that during World Wars I and II, art was confiscated and some banks kept the art pieces and used them in one form or another. Although some old practices of keeping art owned by other people can no longer be implemented, the conditions that I call #valzubiriagenda is a way to produce, circulate and popularize new art.
I am just an artist, but I am hoping that you would confer with your key people to come up with a way to use this for a lot of profit, or at least help smaller investors make a profit.
Here's a question of which comes first, the chicken or the egg. I tell individual investors that as soon as it trends among the smaller investors, the bigger investors, financial institutions and banks will come into the picture.
On the other hand, if you can come up with ways, this early on, to help the investors exchange money and art locally and internationally, a lot more investors might get interested in doing all this as well.
Some banks are small. Some banks had to close because they can no longer support their business. I saw a bank that had to close after defaulting on less then $200 million dollars. If they invested in an artist, they probably could have raised the money they needed to raise. They already had the contacts. If I were this bank, I would have looked into this idea as a last resort. I think what would have stopped them was introducing the idea themselves, because they would have been criticized by the art experts. I'm presenting this idea so you can blame someone else for having someone else come up with the idea.
As a huge institution, you can afford to popularize a few artists. A full page advertisement on the inside of a daily national business newspaper, in the United States, for example, costs $75,000. This can prompt collectors to look at your list of one or more artists. If you reserved 200 works from an artist, the smaller investors will also invest in the same artist. You will not spend so much without investing in future publicity for the artist. You will not spend so much without investing in producing well-written books. They can piggy back on your speculation and invest in the artist themselves. Once an unknown artist becomes famous, the artist cannot be made unfamous.
I met a lady decades ago whose job was to acquire art for the billion dollar law firm she worked for. I cannot believe her job title and tasks existed.
There was an airline catalog which sold expensive items. Would it be a great idea to add a few pages selling expensive original art?
The idea here is to take over what galleries would prefer to do themselves. If you noticed, the galleries can still do what they do, but you can sustain your own art experts.
