Mary McCarthy | Project Director
Mary is a leading urban contemporary art specialist, who has spent the last 20 years following street art, forging contacts with artists, buyers, writers and followers within this counter culture movement. Prior to setting up her own consultancy, Mary worked with Getty, Christies, Bloomsbury and Dreweatts. Mary founded MM Contemporary Arts Ltd in 2012 and has brokered some of the highest profile (and most discreet) urban contemporary art sales. In 2013, she partnered with Paris based auction house Digard to develop their biannual global sale of urban contemporary art, achieving record sales in this sector. In 2018, Mary stepped away from the auction world to work on various art related projects including a TED talk in Switzerland and consulting on various exhibitions throughout the world.
