are you ready to JAMM?

Finally, the first Contemporary Arab and Iranian Art Auction is taking place in Kuwait!
And it's affordable too!

The team at JAMM managed to get art directly from artists to simply eliminate buying from private clients, galleries and corporations, so that art becomes super affordable for collectors.
What a great way to stir up the art scene in Kuwait!

It's a win win situation. New artists get exposed, and established artists will get the chance to familiarize themselves to the public and enforce their presence.
People will have the advantage to explore what this region has to offer. 

JAMM is an independent strategic art advisory service, founded in 2009 by Lulu Al-Sabah and Lydia Limerick. It offers a comprehensive art management and consultancy service to private, corporate and public clients.

Auctioning some of my favourite artist:
