Galerie Zadra is an Australian specialist art dealer and advisory service with a base in Basel, Switzerland. We assist public and private collectors internationally to acquire contemporary and Australian Aboriginal fine art of impeccable provenance.
- Primary and secondary art sales. Through our extensive networks we can source works that fit your specific requirements. Interested in selling? Please contact us for a confidential appraisal. Where the artist is a member of an Indigenous owned art centre, we only accept works that are accompanied by the respective art centre certificate of authenticity.
- Valuations and appraisals. Karen Zadra is an Approved Valuer for Indigenous Art Australia-wide under the Australian Government's Cultural Gifts Program. She has been around Aboriginal art, culture and politics since her teens, having grown up in the desert north east of Alice Springs.
- Collections advice and management for private, institutional and corporate collectors. With a deep understanding of collectors, collections and modern and contemporary art history, we can help you identify gaps in your collection or guide you to new collecting opportunities that reflect your unique collecting motivations and objectives. We offer advisory and management services to help you care for your collection according to museum standards.
- Art writing. Curatorial writing for catalogues and other publications.
