The Guardians of Art
The world’s leading collectors describe their singular passion for acquiring and sharing contemporary art
In The Guardians of Art, DC-based collector Dani Levinas brings together 34 of the most outstanding names in contemporary art collecting, embracing a diverse range of characters who talk with him about the motivations behind their drive to collect and about their ways of sharing their passion for art with the wider public. In his conversations with the Rubells, Dakis Joannou, Martin Z. Margulies and many others, Levinas, himself a major collector who has served on the boards of the Phillips Collection, Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden and the Reina Sofía, emerges as a brilliant interlocutor and an authoritative collector of collectors.
Featured collectors include: Alain Dominique Perrin, Rosa de la Cruz, Helga de Alvear, Lia Rumma, Lekha Poddar, Dakis Joannou, Aaron and Barbara Levine, Giorgio Spanu, Jan Mulder, Sheikha Al Mayassa, Teixeira de Freitas, Jarl Mohn, Mitchell Rales and Emily Wei Rales, Susana Lloret, Don and Mera Rubell, Eugenio López Alonso, José Darío Gutiérrez, Armando Martins, Ernesto Poma, Thomas Kaplan, Jonathan Ruffer, Juan Carlos Maldonado, Anita Zabludowicz, Eddie and Sylvia Brown, Grazyna Kulczyk, Estrellita Brodsky, Alain Servais, Elena Rueda, Marcos and Rafael Martín, Javier Lumbreras, Martin Z. Margulies, Rafael Tous, Harald Falckenberg, J. Tomlinson Hill and Han Nefkens.
