Laure Raibaut is an expert in Chinese Contemporary art. Formerly an archaeologist and a postgraduate of SOAS (School of Oriental and African Studies) in London and the Sorbonne In Paris, she started her career after attending CAFA (Central Academy of Fine Arts) in Beijing at the time the art scene was booming and worked for Platform China Art Institute. In 2007, she joined Chinese Contemporary, one of the most established and longest standing galleries in the field, established in London in 1996, to direct their newly opened New York space. After consulting for Phillips de Pury auction house in London she came back to NYC as Associate Director of Eli Klein Fine Art. She then contributed to the production of Liu Bolin’s Hiding in New York‘s series. As the art market shifted towards Asia, she joined Schoeni Art gallery, another of the leading galleries in the world for Chinese contemporary art, established in 1992 in Hong Kong. Her global experience allowed her to develop relationships with artists, dealers, curators and collectors and to keep expanding her wide knowledge and ability to assess the market.
