CATE BLANCHETT’S ART COLLECTION
It is no secret, famous people such as actors, singers, sportspeople are great art lovers, including Hollywood star Cate Blanchett, who in addition to being an award-winning actress, is an art lover and collector.
Cate Blanchett’s interest in art is not new. In fact in 2015 the actress starred in the film Manifesto, directed by the German artist Julian Rosefeldt, interpreting thirteen different characters who recite posters of artists of various movements, from the Suprematist Manifesto by Kazimir Malevich (1916) to the Manifesto Fluxus (1963) by Mierle Laderman Ukeles.
In 2019 she then played Izabella Barta, a not too veiled version of Marina Abramovic, in an episode of Documentary Now! who parodied the artist’s performance “The Artist Is Present” (2012).
Finally in 2020 Cate Blanchett appeared in a video installation on the theory of “personality types”, entitled The Four Temperaments, created by the Italian artist Marco Brambilla, exhibited at the Michael Fuchs Galerie in Berlin.
Now the actress is creating an art gallery, designed by the Adam Richards Architects studio in London, capable of housing her huge collection of her art.
The new complex will replace a shed and cottage owned by the actress and her husband Andrew Upton at Highwell House, the estate near the town of Crowborough in East Sussex in south-east England.
According to some rumors Cate Blanchett is the owner of works by artists such as Guan Wei, Paula Rego, Howard Hodgkin, Rosalie Gascoigne, Bill Hammond, Bill Robinson, Polly Borland, Zhang Huan and Tim Maguire.
Whether it is a small or large art collection, it is always essential for the good collector to be able to document the history of their works.
To do this, it is important to compile an archive in which the documents and all information relating to the work are kept from the moment of its purchase until the moment it will be sold, bequeathed or donated to a third party.
Today art collectors can manage their collection thanks not only to the support of a community of professionals, but also thanks to new technologies.
Among the most efficient tools used for the creation of digital archives that are always ordered and updated is Art Rights, a platform that, through the use of Blockchain technology, allows you to manage and certify the works in art collections internationally.
And you, are you ready to discover Cate Blanchett’s art collection?
