Have you ever felt lost, looking for some nice tunes to play at home, not knowing what to choose? Nothing better than receiving tips to renovate your music library. In this second episode of the “Songs for Inspiration” series, we invited three international collectors who love Brazil to share playlists created especially for our website and its readers.
Let yourself be moved by Aretha Franklin’s voice, dance to the Latin sound of the Buena Vista Social Club or sing along to the Beatles. These are some of the gems in the selections made by Demetrio Kerrison, Tracy O’Brien and Tobias Arndt. Turn the volume up!
Demetrio Kerrison is a Southern California based art collector, curator, art advisor and music enthusiast. His art collection and practice is focused on artists of color and the African Diaspora. Demetrio’s most recently curated show “Presence” debuted from October to December, 2019 at Fullerton College Art Gallery.
Tracy O’Brien is a Los Angeles based collector and museum patron and co-chair of the Hammer circle, the council that supports the LA Biennial, Made in LA, and a member of the Guggenheim’s Latin American Acquisition Council.
Tobias Arndt lives in Brussels and has been collecting young contemporary art systematically since 2004. His collection focuses on conceptual photography and young North American artists. In recent years, his interest moved onto Latin American art and Video Art.
