Louise Hallett worked in the commercial contemporary art world for 20 years, with her own gallery through the 1980’s.
A series of floods, combined with the shipment of exhibits not arriving on Hallett’s stand for the Chicago Art Fair and the economic downturn, put an end to her gallery and she had to have a major rethink.
Having had such bad experience of her own insurance claims following the floods, Louise decided to see what she could do to change the way art world insurance was handled - and that’s what her and her team at Hallett Independent have been doing for the past 20 years. Hallett Independent offer risk advice and insurance solutions to all areas of the contemporary international art world.
