Adam Lindemann is an investor, writer, art collector, and art dealer known as the Founder and Principal of Venus Over Manhattan, a curatorial platform that expands upon the conventional gallery format in its exhibition of fine art and design objects. Best known as a tastemaker in collecting and investing in contemporary art and design, Adam’s personal collection has included pieces by blue chip artists including Richard Prince, Maurizio Cattelan, Damien Hirst, Jeff Koons, Andy Warhol, and Urs Fischer. As an art collector and gallerist, he is known for setting multiple world records both at auction and privately, including career records for Jeff Koons, Takashi Murakami, and Jean-Michel Basquiat. He broke auction records when he flipped a Jean-Michel Basquiat painting that he bought for $4.5m for $57m at Christie’s 2016. In addition, Adam has written extensively on art including two of Taschen’s bestselling art books, Collecting Contemporary (2006), and Collecting Design (2010), as well as the popular art world column for The New York Observer.
The gallery seeks to cast a unique and often iconoclastic light on the work of established and overlooked artists.
V/M has presented various solo exhibitions and has collaborated with prominent foundations, estates, and galleries.
In 2019, V/M began representing a roster of artists and estates including Peter Saul, the estate of Roger Brown, and the estate of Roy de Forest.
He then launched Mega Communications, a Spanish-language radio broadcasting company which operated 21 stations.
