VIP Art is an international community of collectors, dealers, scholars, critics, and enthusiasts, converging online for exhibitions, special events, and sales of exceptional works of art. Built around curated virtual galleries and customized profiles, the site enables collectors, established and emerging, with a suite of tools that encourage discovery, conversation, and appreciation.
AXA Art was the Lead Partner of the inaugural fair, held in January 2011, and we are proud to continue our partnership of VIP Art.
AXA Art sat down with VIP to discuss the nature of art insurance and to answer specific questions about insuring fine art and collectibles. The discussion included the trends in collecting such as new mediums and the prevalence of contemporary art. The panel of AXA Art experts interviewed included Vivian Ebersman, Director of Art Expertise, Robert Pittinger, Director of Underwriting, and Colin Quinn, Director of Claims.
