In our premiere episode of WTAF, our CEO Kelly chats with Stephanie, founder of the Accessible Art Fair and certified disruptor.
Stephanie Manasseh, founder of Accessible Art Fair, lives up to her reputation as a disruptor in the art world. Based in Brussels, by way of Montreal, Prague and Milan, Manasseh launched the first Accessible Art Fair in 2007, grounded in her mission to bring together talented artists without gallery representation with an art buying public. In 2011, she launched SM Art Advisory, a service that offers personalized art consultancy for corporate and personal collections. Her current collaborations include The Nine, a private members’ club in Brussels; a Sol LeWitt exhibition at the Jewish Museum in Belgium; and Berkshire House, a new art and event space in Massachusetts owned by the sculptor Jonathan Prince. A date for the 2022 Accessible is set in Brussels, though details remain tentative as the world continues to navigate the pandemic. Our fingers are crossed, because I very much plan to be there when it happens.
