NEW YORK, APRIL 1st, 2016
Teriha Yaegashi and Juliette Premmereur are pleased to announce the launch of The New Art Advisors Alliance. The NAAA brings together independent art advisors who share the highest professional standards and a passion for offering visionary art advisory services to their clients.
The Alliance is specifically devoted to multi-talented art advisors under 40, and intends to support young arts professionals committed to providing advisory and curatorial services in a rapidly evolving art market. The NAAA offers its members an exclusive network of industry resources, as well as an opportunity to join a select group of forward- thinking peers.
The point of The New Art Advisors Alliance is to share professional values. It is inclusive, but necessarily invite-only so as to maintain a professional rigor – only trusted art advisors are part of this group. Following in the footsteps of The New Art Dealers Alliance (NADA) founded in 2002, the NAAA seeks to build a community based on shared information, support, and collaboration.
The New Art Advisors Alliance is founded by Teriha Yaegashi, a longtime art advisor who worked as a collection manager for Takashi Murakami and art consultant to the Ace Hotel Group, and Juliette Premmereur, who has a long-standing career in the gallery world, having worked for Paul Kasmin and Sperone Westwater in sales and artist management. The two founders met while art history students at Columbia University, and recently curated “In Sequence” at the SPRING/BREAK ART SHOW.
The Alliance is currently based in New York City, but with plans to expand.
The first member’s launch event is scheduled for Monday, April 18th.

Teriha is honored to be a member of the Brooklyn Academy of Music's (BAM) fundraising auction committee. BAM is an extraordinary New York institution, located in downtown Brooklyn, that for over 150 years been the home to the city's most dynamic, experimental and adventurous performances, as well as the international creative community. It offers world-renowned programming in dance, opera, music, theater, film and visual arts, and has been an essential platform to showing the work of emerging artists and innovative modern masters.
Teriha is curating an exhibition inside Spring/Break Art Show, New York City's curator-driven art fair, along with other art consultants Ella Marder, Juliette Premmereur, and Lara Pan. Their exhibition features kinetic sculptures by Charlotte Becket, which was very favorably reviewed by the Observer:
"More edgy art could be found deeper into the fair via the booth of curators Teriha Yaegashi, Juliette Premmereur, Ella Marder, Lara Pan, who brought the compelling wall works of UK-born artist Charlotte Becket to the fair. Kinetic art is making a comeback in galleries right now as a strong alternative to painting, and Nag, 2014, by Ms. Becket is a great example of how more artists are starting to experiment with movement in their work. The bulbous, convulsing silicone—which looks like a half machine, half organism hybrid—probably sums up our exciting, frightening age better than any other work you’ll see.
But at Spring Break, old-fashioned oil paintings, digital videos, scattershot performances, photography installations and plugged in artworks all hold equal weight, making this fair an enjoyable break from whatever dominant trend you’re looking to escape from. " -- Observer
