Being a professional art mover is much more than to simply pack and ship art to wherever it needs to be. Being a professional art mover means appreciating art in its any form, from classic paintings and sculptures to conceptual and performance art. At Fine Art Shippers, we love art and not only because we deal with it every single day, but also because each art mover on our team is a true connoisseur. For this reason, we do enjoy visiting various art shows, events, and fairs. For example, this past June, we were lucky to visit Art Basel and get acquainted with a whole range of modern and contemporary art offered by the world’s leading galleries. Some of the most impressive pieces were presented by the renowned Metro Pictures Gallery, and now we want to tell you more about this amazing place.
Metro Pictures was founded in New York in 1980 by two reputable gallerists: Helene Winer and Janelle Reiring. For today, it is one of the best Chelsea galleries offering contemporary art with a focus on photography, video, and provocative conceptual art. Its outstanding collection includes works by Cindy Sherman, who is by far one of the most expensive living female artists, Louise Lawler, Robert Longo, Trevor Paglen, Camille Henrot, Nina Beier, and many other artists whose work is definitely worthy of your attention. So if you are looking for something unique and eye-catching, Metro Pictures is an ideal place for both serious collectors and enthusiasts!
