Sabine Casparie works as a freelance art guide providing contemporary art tours in London. Sabine’s skill is making contemporary art accessible and enjoyable to all tour members.
Art has always been Sabine’s passion. Sabine has worked as a lawyer for Shell and the Court of Rotterdam, and as a property consultant, before deciding to make a career change into art. She studied art history at the Courtauld Institute of Art and completed a Masters of Modern and Contemporary Art at Christie’s Education, London in 2012.
During her degrees Sabine discovered that London has the most vibrant gallery scene in the world, with commercial galleries spread out all over the city. These galleries often show museum-quality works in spectacular settings. And whereas museums have entrance fees and queues, the commercial galleries are free and you will often find yourself alone there, providing for a unique viewing experience. It has since become Sabine’s mission to share these amazing spaces with a wider public, and at the same time to explore London’s many interesting neighbourhoods in which these galleries are based.
Sabine’s skill is to make contemporary art accessible and enjoyable. She translates complex artistic notions and difficult press releases into clear language, supported by anecdotes and quotes from the artist.
Sabine works freelance as an art guide and is a yearly tour guide at Frieze Art Fair, giving her a unique insight into the art world. She works with galleries and artists throughout London. Between 2014 and 2016 Sabine was a collection consultant for CW+, the charity that owns and manages the art collection of Chelsea and Westminster Hospital. Sabine is currently based between London and Houston and completed a one-year Certificate in Museum Education at the University of Houston. She will continue to offer regular art tours and private tours in London, Houston and New York, as well as reviews of the London and American art scene.
