“As an art advisor, insightful new books are a vital force in my practice. From catalogues raisonnes and exhibition catalogues to artists’ monographs, biographies and art market analyses, they all contribute to how I work, learn and innovate,” explained Kelly. “Reading the Art World will provide an essential space for us to elevate these works. As an avid reader I’m delighted to have further reason to read more and have the opportunity to engage with the minds behind these publications.”
