A TARGETED CHOICE
is proposed to help you finding the most appropriate and best value-for-money artworks, guided by a dedicated methodology with simple, concrete tools and online portfolios, and a personal approach and expert advice.
Without a thorough knowledge of Aboriginal art or art in general we were entirely reliant on IDAIA and its recommendation. IDAIA, within a very short period of time, managed to educate us, extract our preferences and recommend a shortlist of paintings. The painting [we chose] immediately connected with us due to its regional story, colour scheme and expression. We are very, very grateful for IDAIA’s advise and especially thank Solenne Ducos-Lamotte for her professionalism, passion and deep understanding and knowledge of Aboriginal art – outstanding experience !

The trip across Australia’s Top End organised by IDAIA was fabulous ! It was such a strong emotion to find ourselves in Aboriginal country. We were particularly moved by this people’s simplicity and authenticity.

Thank you for your great work during the visit [of the Aboriginal art collection at the Musée du quai Branly]. The attendees were extremely pleased with the tour and with the evening.
