Me?

I'm an independent art advisor & project manager based in NYC. I studied Fine Art, with a focus in printmaking, at Wellesley College and worked with Zarina Hashmi, Robert Blackburn Printmaking Workshop, Bodhi Art, and Burney Morgan Art Advisory prior to launching my own advisory firm, Sarah Burney Art Advisory.  I specialize in South Asian and Middle Eastern contemporary art, emerging NYC artists and contemporary printmaking. It's an odd combination I know, but it's the very normal result of my upbringing (Pakistani, born in America, but raised in Kuwait), + my education + my experiences working in nyc. 

A few projects that I'm especially proud of: Zarina Hashmi’s 2012 – 2013 traveling retrospective, Zarina: Paper Like Skin (Hammer Museum, Fall 2012; Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, Winter 2013 and The Art Institute of Chicago, Spring 2013), Gallery Espace’s participation in The Armory Fair (2013, 2015,  and 2016) the Studio Immersion Project Fellowship at Robert Blackburn Printmaking Workshop, Ornate Contemplate, the South Asian Women's Creative Collective's 2016 symposium and Archival Alchemy, SAWCC's 20th Anniversary exhibition.
