NEW YORK – On 23 September, Sotheby’s invited guests to Soho House’s Lower East Side location, the Ludlow House, for cocktails, canapés and a conversation about legendary musician David Bowie. Over bites like avocado toast, sliders and seared squash with Romesco, the audience learned how to collect like Bowie through a presentation by Beth Greenacre, curator of David Bowie’s collection, and Michael Macaulay, head of Sotheby’s Contemporary Art Evening sales. Some key guidelines: collect what you like, resist hierarchies and look beyond the mainstream.
