Recruitment in America

SML has developed a firm presence in America with particularly strong ties in New York, LA, Chicago, Miami and Austin. As a traditional centre for the art trade, New York’s market mirrors London’s in many respects. Our focus in Manhattan is on galleries, auction houses, advisory firms and artists’ studios, and we are widening our area of expertise in collector-led foundations, helping transform them into public institutions.

Recruitment in Asia

Our recruitment in Asia primarily focuses on Hong Kong, Singapore and Shanghai. Here we work with communications agencies, galleries, and auction houses, and we have helped many of our Western clients launch businesses across the region.

Recruitment in Europe

SML has had a foothold in Europe since it’s inception and we continue to cover briefs throughout this area, predominantly focusing on galleries and auction houses. This well established art market continues to offer numerous excellent opportunities for art professionals, and our recent assignments have seen us expand into sourcing for art fairs, biennales and art funds.
