Published by The International Art Alliance since 1983.

Current Note:  The 2012/2013 Directory has been completely revised and is nearing completion. The European and Asia Pacific listings have been completed and are available, and the North American listings are nearly complete and have been uploaded in a "Work in Progress" version that is being updated every few days. Pre-publication price of $115 is still in effect, then it will be $140 (September 2012)

A few facts worth noting:       

  • there are several million works of art on display in corporations around the world -- almost as many as are displayed in city art museums!
  • the value of all the artworks displayed in corporate offices is several billion dollars, and corporations spend millions every year purchasing art.

In fact the most important patrons of the arts during the past 50 years have been  .......... not governments,  or private collectors,   or religions,    or even museums,  ..... but corporations!

The 2012/2013 Directory has been completely revised and is nearing completion. The European and Asia Pacific listings have been completed and are available, and the North American listings are nearly complete and have been uploaded in a "Work in Progress" version that is being updated every few days. Pre-publication price of $115 is still in effect, then it will be $140 (September 2012)  

In publication since 1983, the International Directory of Corporate Art Collections is still the only comprehensive reference for corporate art collecting around the world.

We continue to add information to our website, and to revise the directory with new features, so take your time to look at the information we have on this website.  In the Editor's Choice section you can find a  list of the 50 best collections in North America.  In the Bibliography there is a brief list of other books and articles about corporate art collections.  And please feel free to contact us with any questions you may have.

If you follow news of the business world, you've surely noticed how fast the corporate and business world changes  --  which also means that corporate art collections change as well.  When we published the directory in a printed book form, we found that during the two or three-year intervals between updates, there were extensive changes -- new collections appearing, some companies merging with others, some collections sold, and some companies disappearing completely.  

Because the Directory is now published so that you can download it online.  we are able to update and add new collections constantly  without waiting for the publication of a new edition.  We have eliminated the release of the Directory as a bi-annual publication of year-specific editions.  We check and update the information of about 75-100 collections every month and  we add new collections or make corrections on existing listings whenever we become aware of changes.  It is an ongoing process and  takes approximately 18 months to 2 years to make a complete cycle, but there is never a point when the "job is done"  because a corporation's  strategy can change overnight!  This  updating process has made the directory a constantly growing and evolving project -- a living  "work in progress."

Now we are doing a complete revision of the directory and it will be available on December 1.  It is available at a pre-publication price of $115 until December, then it will be $160

 

Note:  The International Directory of Corporate Art Collections was originally published as a soft-bound book  --   ISBN: 0-943488-00-1/ 0943488001.  It was published as the ARTnews International Directory of Corporate Art Collections between 1986 - 1994.  In 1998 we began to produce the Directory on CD-ROM.  If you would like a paper copy, you can order a spiral-bound printout of all of the information on the CD-ROM -- this is approximately 600 pages.   Further information is available on the order form.

In continuous publication for 22 years, and still the only reference source to the constantly changing world of corporate art collecting.
 
 
 
 

Since the directory is an ongoing project and portions are constantly being added to and edited,  the latest versions of the Directory files will be uploaded every month onto the website in a protected location, so that subscribers are able to access the newer versions for a period of one year.

When you order the directory I will send you via email a password and user ID so that you can download the latest version of the directory in a pdf or .MS Word .doc format..
