ONE DALTON ART CONSULTANT
Cambridge based art dealer and advisor Kate Chertavian,
former curator and advisor to David Bowie,
will be the exclusive consultant and curator for One Dalton.
If art helps us understand our place in the world, it can be said that the residences at One Dalton will surely be an exquisite place.
Kate Chertavian, the distinguished London born art dealer and advisor, who assisted the late David Bowie in building his notable art collection, was recently engaged to collaborate with the design team and curate a world class, distinctive art collection for the hotel and residential common spaces. As a Boston area resident herself, Ms. Chertavian understands the significance of the One Dalton building, and is well qualified to contribute to its place on the Boston skyline.
“Ultimately, our residents will be among the most discerning clientele in the world and we’re striving to surpass even their highest expectations,” Richard Friedman, president and CEO of Carpenter & Co., said in a statement about the addition of Ms. Chertavian to the design “dream team”. Kate has curated some of Boston’s most important art collections and is currently doing a major project for Harvard Business School.
The right art is more than just beauty or a statement, it can truly reflect the passion and attitudes of the environment, and this is what Ms. Chertavian hopes to achieve in curating for the One Dalton residences. “Art is really about conversation” says the noted curator. Living amongst art that speaks to you sparks conversation – between the observer and the pictures themselves.
Kate will bring an elegant and discerning eye to the design project, and will be assisted by Lucy Rosenburgh, a Massachusetts-native with 15 years’ experience and a particular expertise in 20th century prints and works on paper. According to Chertavian, “One Dalton will play host to an international, sophisticated clientele who appreciate Boston’s cultural and intellectual underpinnings. The collection then will be conceptually rigorous, aesthetically deft, with a touch of humor. It will be a celebration of Boston, and the city’s role in an international artistic dialogue.”
