CURATORIAL & CONSULTANCY

In 1999, Homa founded MUSEUMVIEWS Consultancy which has been been providing advisory services to public & private arts & cultural organizations in the United States, Europe and parts of the Middle East.

In 2003, MUSEUMVIEWS Consultancy with MUSEUMVIEWS Productions LLC were merged under the same umbrella.

EXPERIENCES

In addition to working with private and corporate collectors, HOMA & her team of highly trained art historians, filmmakers, designers and arts professionals have  provided support to artists and private galleries, in the United States, Western Europe and parts of the Middle East.

PHILOSOPHY

MuseumViews’ philosophy of collecting has been based on many years of academic research and practical experiences of visiting, and working with, various visual and performing arts organizations.

With the belief that this late modern era, art collecting is a form of patronage, Homa has continued to encourage collectors to become involved with arts and cultural institutions that closely reflect their aesthetic and social priorities, and sensibilities.
