As Director of SHOWstudio‘s Shop and Founder of CS&P Art Advisory, Carrie Scott was a featured speaker at the New York edition of the Portable Curator’s Conference in 2012. Presented by Portable, the conference featured a series of keynotes from leading creatives within the fashion, film, music, digital, design and retail spheres.
Portable welcomed nine presenters to the discussion, including Susie Bubble (Style Bubble), Philippe von Borries and Piera Gelardi (Refinery29), Gia Coppola (Fashion Photographer & Filmmaker), Carrie Scott (SHOWstudio and CS&P), Chris Corrado (Capsule), Josh Rubin (Cool Hunting), Warren Fu (Music video Director), Rodrigo Calvo (Mr & Mrs Smith) and Soraya Darabi (Food Spotting).
In concert with curating exhibitions and building both private and public art collections, Carrie Scott & Partners works closely with a number of artists and photographers - including Nick Knight, David Sims, Walter & Zoniel, Marina Shacola, The Harold Feinstein Estate, Lord Snowdon, and Federico Pestilli - to establish strong and sustained markets on their behalf. CS&P participates in many aspects of this process, from selecting pieces in their archive, assisting and overseeing artwork production, and putting together a considered sales strategy that sees placement of the work in museum and exhibition settings.
Founder and Managing Partner of Carrie Scott & Partners, Carrie Scott has been a curator, Art Historian and arts writer since 2004. She has developed Modern and Contemporary collections in Europe and the United States, working with numerous businesses, executives and collectors to help them establish, manage, and maintain both corporate and personal art collections.
Since early 2010, Scott has also worked side-by-side with visionary fashion photographer Nick Knight to curate his archive as well as curate exhibitions at the SHOWstudio Shop, a gallery that exhibited high profile contemporary artists like Douglas Gordon, Raymond Pettibon, Keith Tyson, Terrence Ko, and Anj Smith, alongside the work of dynamic younger artists like Tim A. Shaw, Courtney Andrews, Charlotte Kingsnorth, and Walter & Zoniel. The SHOWstudio gallery is now globally recognised as having been a pioneering, ground-breaking platform that nurtured and encouraged creativity by combining the different art forms together in one space.
Before starting Carrie Scott & Partners in 2009, Scott was Director of Nicole Klagsburn Gallery, New York, where she worked closely with artists such as Beth Campbell, Matthew Day Jackson, Rashid Johnson, Mika Rottenberg, Adam McEwen, and Storm Tharp. Prior to that, she was noted curator of the Hedreen Gallery at Seattle University's Lee Center, and Director of the James Harris Gallery also in Seattle, Washington.
In 2017, Scott appeared as a presenter on The Art Show, an entirely new art series that richly captures the artists of our lifetime that have inspired collectors and art lovers alike.
