3 inspiring women on the networks
Podcasts, Youtube channels or Instagram accounts, social networks are full of more and more influencers from the artistic world. We have selected 3 of our favorite accounts and they are 3 women with very different worlds. They share theirs insights about the art world, their favorites and the current events not to be missed. Let's meet these inspiring women who are shaking up the art world in their own way.
@IMAGINE_MOI'S INSTAGRAM AND PODCAST
Art historian Marie-Odile shares with humor and singularity the keys to understanding art and its market better. In her words, "art is not a snobbish trick, it is up to everyone to be interested in it" and it is with brio that she succeeds in creating envy and sensitizing all the curious and art lovers.
An activist at heart, she breaks the codes to offer an unfiltered rereading of art history so that it is more representative and above all, more inclusive. She also participated in the #5womenartists campaign to highlight women, dramatically underrepresented and undervalued in museums, galleries and auction houses.
Her instagram account @imagine_moi, which has already attracted more than 12K subscribers, is oriented towards her artistic favorites, new acquisitions and cultural outings. With a real closeness and a quirky tone, she addresses the greatest number and initiates all artistic currents as with her AdventArtCalendar with a new artist every day or her ArtyReview, great analysis of contemporary artists.
Her ArtBreak podcast raises several themes related to the art market such as sexism, money and even the virtual. She gives us a straightforward observation - and that feels good - about progress and what remains to be improved on all these topics.
A really smart (and bilingual) fresh content that will allow you, among other things, to finally be able to quote more than 5 women artists who have marked the history of art (go ahead, try!). Listen without waiting to her latest podcast to know the best tips of the year 2021 which we are lucky to be part of.
Like a chameleon, Salomé's elegant silhouette blends into the works. With content combining art and fashion, she pushes open the doors of galleries, museums and fairs in order to pose, always from behind, in front of the paintings chosen by her. It mixes artistic and clothing styles by addressing everyone, whether you are more contemporary art like here in front of an installation by the artist Kapwani Kiwanga or rather Renaissance like El Greco.
The idea of matching her two passions was born during one of her cultural outings. So dressed by the greatest of luck as one of the canvases of the museum, she had her photo taken by certain visitors who were kindly amused by it. The result is research and anticipation in order to create increasingly sophisticated associations for a perfect match.
If her content is at first glance aesthetic, it is also very qualitative. Because if her posts catch the eye, the legend that accompanies them is always enriched with anecdotes focused on the artist. We also find in her stories more in-depth focus on contemporary artists like Hernan Bas.
During the first confinement, the museums and galleries being closed, she initiated herself for our greatest pleasure into the #gettymuseumchallenge by recreating the decor of paintings such as the very successful Girl reading the post by Norman Rockwell or even Femme à sa Toilette by Berthe Morisot.
The artwork always takes precedence and it is the work itself who dictates her outfit. By personifying the work with her staging, Salomé succeeds in capturing our attention and arousing the desire to visit the exhibition. It emphasizes galleries and opens the doors to this world still too closed. A great lesson in style and a great initiative to raise awareness about art.
@BLISALISAB' INSTAGRAM AND YOUTUBE CHANNEL
Always passionate about art, Lisa cut her teeth at Christie's. This founding experience allowed her to discover unique collections and get closer to incredible pieces before they were sold.
Moreover, she has been a collector for 6 years now. The works that surround her are in her image: colorful and resolutely contemporary like her Mr. Sunshine mirror by Greg Bogin or her Manolete by Alex Foxton, a lipstick drawing representing a matador. This work produced by this former designer at Dior illustrates well Lisa's interest in another of her passions, fashion.
Very anchored in pop culture, it is in this dynamic that a year ago, she started her Youtube channel on Art. Very polished videos on a rhythmic musical background in which she talks to us, in English, about her new acquisitions resulting for example from the Colette x Ikea collaboration, visits to exhibitions like the one of Josh Sperling at the Perrotin gallery, relevant interviews on the art world like such as the one of the curator and journalist at Juxtapoz Magazine Sasha Bogojev or the one of the founders of Avant Arte. We also recommend her video What Kendall Jenner’s Art Collection says about her? which gives us a powerful analysis about her crazy collection. Finally, contemporary content that takes us behind the scenes of the art market and its new players. We also invite you to read (again) our interview with Lisa to learn all about her collection.
