Grateful, to Larry's List for this wonderful introduction to Simon Franks of London.
Exciting things are happening in England for quite a while as many people know. The UK has taken the lead in leading the edge in fine arts in recent years, and now this.
Simon Franks, a curator who as he focuses on global artists and those countries which are emerging, economically and vis-a-vis a global art scene, propels a new paradigm shift forward with his focus on international artists. I quote him here from the Larry's List interview: "Our collection sees itself as a champion of the artists we collect." Stated in such a way, what a lyrical statement to make, and music to my ears as an artist.
As I visit Simon Frank's website online, I realize what a giant this organization is in terms of influence, reach and philanthropy across the world, and not simply a foundation with collectors focused on collecting.
Again, I am grateful to Larry's List for their organization and for my subscription.
Artists, curators visiting this blog and all others with interest, are invited to visit the Larry's List website to see this exciting trend involving the so called "emerging" artists from around the world.
Thank you, Larry's List!
