Sophie Vander is the founder and head curator of Curatorial and Co. in Sydney. First set up as an online gallery it moved to a fabulous building in Redfern in August 2020. It's a beautiful light-filled space accommodating painting, sculpture, ceramics, and multimedia. The gallery installs a new exhibition every month so Sophie and her dynamic team are constantly refreshing the walls.
We talked to Sophie about all aspects of her business, her path to becoming a successful gallerist, how to approach galleries, and much more. She is a strong, committed, and passionate woman and we cant wait to see where she takes Curatorial and Co. in the future. Thanks for taking the time to speak to us.
