Art collector Adam Sender is in the spotlight during Art Basel Miami Beach as he exhibits art from his private collection. The exhibit will be taking place in one of his Miami homes. It will feature works from Richard Prince, Cindy Sherman, Chris Ofili and Rashid Johnson, all chosen by curator Sarah Aibel. At the age of 45, Adam has managed to piece together a huge collection of artwork from the very best contemporary artists around. There is a total of 400 pieces by 139 artists in Adam’s collection. Adam says that he didn’t purchase every single amazing piece of art there is.
He states he only has bought pieces from artists who have had a long art career. His collection features pieces various movements that have taken place in the past few decades such as conceptual art, minimalism and appropriation. It was difficult for Adam to find pieces that were intellectually stimulating and visually appealing. Fortunately, he was able to find pieces that fit the criteria thanks to his knack of focus. He also has a rapport with the top female art dealers in the art dealers. His collection also features work by great female artists such as Mickalene Thomas, Wangechi Mutu, Barbara Kruger and Jenny Holzer.
Adam Sender has actively shared his collection with the world unlike other collectors who keep their collections hidden from the public. When he started, he had no idea that he would have a collection that was worthy of loaning to museums. He also plans to donate some of the pieces to institutions later on. He states that when he started, he didn’t think it would turn into the amazing collection that it is. He says that every single piece he bought he was passionate about it. Adam Sender plans to continue buying more pieces of contemporary art to add to his collection.
