Marcel Sitcoske - Art Advisory Services

Marcel Sitcoske Art Advisory is a consulting and curatorial firm providing artwork in all media for residential, corporate, and public projects. Drawing from over 20 years of involvement in the ever-changing art world, Los Angeles based Marcel Sitcoske brings her unique perspective, expertise, and access to primary and secondary markets.

During the 1980’s Marcel lived and worked in New York establishing early relationships and contacts. At that time the city provided the creative playground in which artists and galleries supported each other. Marcel had the opportunity to both know and manage material from well-established artists such as Andy Warhol, Robert Rauschenberg, Jasper Johns, Jean-Michel Basquiat, and Keith Haring. At Bardamu, her experimental Soho gallery, Marcel was instrumental in identifying and championing emerging artists such as Kate Shepherd, Vik Muniz, Fabian Marcaccio, Stephen Dean, and Lydia Dona, who have gone on to have illustrious careers with solid museum representation and blue chip status.

After leaving New York Marcel proved herself to be a visionary, curating groundbreaking solo and group shows at her prestigious gallery in San Francisco. Throughout the 1990’s and early 2000’s, Marcel Sitcoske Gallery notably exhibited Jean-Michel Basquiat’s


first solo exhibition of paintings and drawings in San Francisco. Other notable solo shows included vital work of artists Ray Charles White, Emil Lukas, and Julian Lethbridge.

Her pioneering group shows were celebrated. Re: Rauschenberg explored the broad and far reaching influence of Rauschenberg’s practice on younger artists including Jack Pierson, Jessica Stockholder, James Hyde, and Lydia Dona. Let’s Get to Work was a survey exhibition of young British artists, many of whom had never exhibited in the United States including Richard Woods, Simon Starling, and Ian Dawson. The tension filled yet exhilarating exhibition Attack: Attraction explored the relationship between painting and photography, highlighting work by Gerhard Richter, Vik Muniz, and Hiroshi Sugimoto. These cutting edge exhibitions brought new depth to the scope of art previously experienced in San Francisco.

Marcel continues to expand her global reach, both advising and acquiring for first time buyers who are developing their collection, and evaluating and potentially restructuring the collections of both well-established private and corporate collectors.
