Research project: Business Innovations for Art Galleries


Applicability of innovative management solutions for private art galleries. My research question: how to apply business innovations to art galleries to exploit their business potential. My research aim: to design and practically assess an innovative business model that could increase the efficiency of art gallery management.


I got interested in philosophy and fine art at the secondary school in Vilnius, Lithuania. I studied philosophy at Vilnius University (BA and MA). Then I studied management at Hochschule Bremen, University of Applied Sciences (MA, Siemens Scholarship) and additionally learned German language. I worked as a general business consultant and legal translator for the largest part of my professional life. I have been regularly writing about various aspects of the art market for Lithuanian cultural and business publications and, occasionally, for London webzines since 2007. Several years ago I decided to turn the hobby of researching the art market and the hobby of scientific analysis into a substantial occupation. This decision eventually brought me to Kingston University where I enjoy working towards my PhD.
