Previously a management consultant, Christoph Noe decided to switch industries and work in the contemporary art scene. Initially focusing on Chinese contemporary art, later he co-founded LARRY'S LIST, the leading art market knowledge company providing data, research and access to contemporary art collectors. In his role, he has edited and published a number of books and reports including a catalogue raisonné for the painter Liu Ye; the first publication of this kind for a Chinese contemporary artist, the "Private Museum Report (2016 and 2023)", a global overview on the landscape of privately founded contemporary art museums, and “The Next Gen Art Collectors Report (2021)”, a survey on art collectors below the age of 40 and the best-selling guidebook “How to Not Fuck Up Your Art-World Happiness (2022)”.
He has not been only advisor and a sparing’s partner to some major art collectors and private museums, but also to corporate clients from the fashion, luxury and automotive industry on their art engagements.
Christoph Noe has lectured extensively on the art market, among others for academic institutions including Angewandte University, Vienna, Ewha University, Seoul, and HKU. Leading global news media and art press, from Financial Times to China Daily, have been quoting Noe on his expertise on the global art market.
