Citi Private Bank is proud to sponsor Art13 London, the first truly global art fair. With offices around the world, Citi Private Bank shares Art13 London's international perspective.
Art13 London will showcase some of the foremost names in contemporary art with a focus on art from growing economies, and we are confident it will offer galleries, artists, collectors and dealers from across the globe a platform in London.
The growth of the contemporary art market mirrors economic growth trends around the world. London is a global centre of both finance and contemporary art, and we believe this ground breaking event will offer unique insights and value to our clients.
Citi's expertise in art goes back a long way. We were at the forefront in launching an art advisory service in 1979. Recognizing the increasing role of finance in the global art market, Citi Art Advisory & Finance offers discreet, bespoke advice and access to artists and insights into art world trends.
We believe that art offers a vision into the future, and we are excited to partner with Art13 London in bringing new and emerging artists from around the world together in this new forum. We hope that any of you in London will be able to take part in the exciting program of activities happening during the Fair.
