AN ARTWORK IS NEVER REALLY FINISHED

We see every artwork as a living and evolving entity. How it is presented impacts how it is experienced. It is always possible to reinvent and reinvigorate an artwork, and experience it in a completely new way.

Hirsch and Associates continues to honor the mission and high standards set by its founder Oliver Hirsch.  Oliver, an NYU professor of exhibition design, opened Hirsch & Associates in 1992 as a way to combine his training as an archival framer with Bernard Walsh, along with his exhibition expertise. 

We work directly with New York's finest conservators of paper, photographs, sculptures and objects to ensure that all art is respectfully and meticulously preserved before being prepared for display.  Clients, from private collectors to galleries and museums, continue to seek Hirsch & Associates’ services because they have come to trust our highly trained art associates through the phases of preservation, design and display.

 
 
 
 
 

MARCIA GOMIDE, OWNER

Marcia’s background has always been in the museum, art and conservations worlds. Early on, she studied anthropology which led her to work in museums - the Museum of the National Congress in Brazil and El Museo del Barrio in New York City. Later, she completed her masters of Museum Studies to delve deeper into exhibition design and collections management.

Her husband Oliver Hirsch started Hirsch & Associates in 1992 and she began working with him there in 1998. She’s been running the business since 2007 and loves the standard of work the company aspires to for their clients.

There are many wonderful elements to the work created by Hirsch. Marcia loves the creative challenge of presenting art work to not only look its finest but also to preserve it so that it outlives the current era.

Beauty is what moves her, and she believes the function of art is to create emotions in people. Art exists to provoke.
