    How Esther Kim Varet Discovered Her Background Was an Asset

    Esther Kim Varet founded her gallery Various Small Fires as project space in her Los Angeles home. It has since grown to have a location in Seoul, Korea with plans for another—as she announces in this podcast—to open soon in Dallas, Texas. In this podcast, Kim Varet talks about her experience as the child of immigrants with strong ties still in Korea, her conservative Baptist education and her own experience with art and how that has informed her role as a gallerist. After a brief experience as a partner in a New York gallery, Kim Varet discovered in Los Angeles that her personal experience—from her background to the artists she was interested in to her own ties to Korea—could become a valuable asset in growing her gallery.

    Sotheby's Mari-Claudia Jiménez Looks Ahead

    Mari-Claudia Jiménez is Chairman, Managing Director & Worldwide Head Business Development Global Fine Arts, Sotheby’s. In this podcast, she connects the challenges of 2020 to the incredible art market successes of 2021. The pandemic revealed a new market environment where in-person viewings are no longer requisite for sales but digital and AR technologies are key. Jimenez explains that big market players like Sotheby’s focus on global reach. The notable growth in Asia is having a broader effect on the market as collectors are no longer strictly bound by the former collecting categories but they view luxury goods and a diverse variety of artworks as essential elements of their fine art collections.
