Art Tausch presents an emerging roster of artists from Germany whose personal narratives are linked by the multilayered nature of the artists’ identities. Both abstract and representational, painting and drawing dominate and invite viewers into worlds within worlds. We are committed to invest in our artists’ careers, supporting their development through digital storytelling and experiential art exhibitions, while connecting them directly to their collectors.
In the age of Instagram and rapidly consumable content, Art Tausch finds conversations with artists to be the most exciting aspect of art collecting. We offer our collectors the opportunity to focus on building relationships with artists through digital studio visits and experiential art experiences within the gallery. We hope to remake the art world into a more transparent art world and inspire a new generation of art patrons to participate in an effortless art-buying experience.
“If you acquire a piece of art it is the beginning of a relationship, it enriches you and connects you to humanity. Artists are truly indispensable.” - Annabelle J. Verhoye
About Annabelle J. Verhoye
Approaching the arts scene with fresh eyes has allowed Annabelle Verhoye to consider more inventive ways to support artists beyond acquisitions. The freedom to try a piece of art before committing to buy forges the uniqueness of Art Tausch. The word “Tausch” is German for “Exchange” and sparked the idea of launching her business in 2021. Her passion and deeply-seeded interest for German Contemporary Art was instilled at a very young age. As an artist herself, she understands the challenge of entering into a new market and wants to support a dialogue between exceptional emerging artists from Germany and first-time collectors in New York.
Annabelle brings a highly-developed eye and access to the most important relationships in the constantly evolving art market. Having family in Germany and France, with frequent travels abroad to museums, galleries, and artist studios served as an early foundation in the arts. Through constant research, networking, exhibition viewings, and travel to international art fairs and auctions, Annabelle works with an international client base to provide expertise and guidance to those new to collecting and those who have been collecting for generations.
Annabelle’s academic training includes an MFA from School of Visual Arts, New York. Her professional training at the FH Düsseldorf was devoted to leading German artists. Annabelle Verhoye is a member of the Whitney Museum, Guggenheim and MoMA.
“Stepping fully in the art world is only a natural evolution for me. Art and its magnetism have become a meditative journey , central to our inner reflection”. - Gaël de Brousse
