Adam Sender

“When I started buying art, I never thought that this was going to turn into what it turned into” -Adam Sender

Thanks to being a skilled hedge fund manager Adam Sender, now in his mid forties, was able to begin buying art at a young age, starting in 1998. It wasn’t long before he left Steve Cohen’s SAC Capital Advisers LP to become the founder and chief executive officer of Exis Capital Management Inc. Today Sender has amassed a library of over a thousand interestingly various works of art by more than 140 different artists, each with their own unique style. He takes varying styles and combine them in a way that makes them seem to naturally fit together as if pieces of a story that need to come together to form a whole. “When you speak about this collection, you have to talk about how kaleidoscopic it is,” said Gabriela Palmieri, who is a senior specialist in the Contemporary Art department at Sotheby’s where Sender is currently selling a portion of his collection, “You really see the intellectual curiosity of the person behind it.” While it is apparent that Sender appreciates sexuality, it is also clear that he appeals
to the spontaneous and risqué as well. Sarah Lucas, Charles Ray, Cindy Sherman, John Currin, and Richard Price whose “Spirited America” hung in a children’s wash-room during his 2011 show in Miami Home Alone. The Home Alone collection was exhibited in one of Sender’s homes, not even leaving closets unfilled, during the Art Basel Miami Beach annual art fair. It was said that the idea behind the collection was to make it seem as if the house had become so overrun with art that it has cause the residents to just pick-up and go, leaving the art home alone. “You go to collection visits in homes, but when have you ever seen a show that has taken over a residence? It seemed like an interesting angle” said Sender’s private curator Sarah Aibel, who had been working with him since 2006, she had also mentioned, “My thought process at first was, I was fighting against the idea that this was a residential space. I wanted to turn it into a white box. But it’s a residential space. Period. So I wanted to use that to its advantage.” Abiel and Sender have both commented on how it’s a shame to have so much of Sender’s library “hidden away” in storage, the event was quite exciting for everyone and allowed some of these paintings to get the attention that they deserve.

Sender began to draw attention in 2003 at Matthew Barney’s art show at the Guggenheim Museum, the chief curator Lisa Dennison had described him as adventurous. “He collected Barney in depth, which was really adventurous then,” said Dennison, “Adam saw that Barney invented a new language of art, and he used that as a barometer for what he collected afterwards. Adam always looked at whole bodies of work, and in-depth. He was ahead of his time.” The attention kept climbing as he began loaning works in his collection with museums and other exhibitions; the Jewish Museum, the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the New Museum in New York, and the Palais de Tokyo in Paris are a few places he’s loaned to. Sender regularly sells works he owns as well as donates some. “He created an interesting and provocative website that you can enter to make your case for a loan,” said Lisa Dennison, “It became a great and important lending library.”

The passion Sender has for art was able to grow and expand into what it is today due to his trading. “Collecting is a long-term process and it’s very different from what I do all day,” said Sender, “which is trading. It’s the yin and yang.” Despite his company’s great success, with a 15 percent gain in 2008 with no declines in the years after, in 2014 Sender decided to sell his company and focus entirely on his art library, commenting how “All things must pass.” With a particular eye that can pick out the best artworks immediately in a bunch, “kind of [like] lazer vision” as Sarah Aibel put it, Sender has been able to amount his vast collection and help newer artists, as well as more seasoned artists, become recognized. He commented how he doesn’t buy from artists who are still in school or a single year into their career, he likes to wait a couple of years to let them find their-self, “I’m not a chaser. I’m a pursuer of great works by artists who have had long careers.”

Although raised Jewish Sender is finding himself embarrassing Buddhist philosophy. Sender’s library and the way he compiles his collections reflect his own creative mind, it’s way of trying to communicate. Aibel once commented how a private collection can often reflect the collector’s own thought process and taste. “For me it was really important that the works were intellectually stimulating, and they had to be visually appealing as well,” said Sender, “Every single thing I bought, I was passionate about. It grew organically.” His library contains the diverse mix of works by Wangechi Mutu, Barbra Kruger, Raymond Pettibonm Banks Violette, Charles Ray, Mike Kelley, Rosemarie Trockel, Jim Lambie, Diana Al-Hadid, Frank Benson, Chris Ofili, Rashid Johnson, John Baldessari, Gilbert & George, Dan Flavin, Lawrence Weiner, Keith Harring, and many more. Sender now enters a new chapter of his life which he is happy to be lucky enough to live in company with many works of art.

This is especially pivotal if you have a puppy or a special breed. What you do or do not give them can be detrimental to their health.

Well the fact is that puppies are growing at a fast rate. Now, there are some foods that your puppy may need less of. It is absolutely not okay to feed your puppy adult dog food. This is important because adult dog food can be deficient in certain nutrients puppy needs for growth.

1. Puppies need a higher protein diet.

3. Adult dogs need good amount of fats in their diet.

A Few Things You Should Know About Kyle Bass

  • Posted on November 13, 2015 at 7:14 pm

Kyle Bass subscribes to the school of thought that in the very near future, Chinese banks will adversely suffer from a loan-loss cycle because they have grown too large when compared to the country’s GDP. Speaking recently on CNBC’s Power Lunch, he said that if the conditions prevail, then a large part of Asia would be forced to take a breather in matters development. He said that there are numerous institutions that lend to China in an aggressive manner and pointed that the bank will see severe trouble in the next few years.

Kyle said that in short, financial institutions in Asia will suffer. However, he pointed out that because China can deal with such problems internally, the government would be forced to refinance the banks; an action that would lead to the end of double-digit growth in the country. He said that when an institution ceases to grow, a financial problem is always expected.

Kyle Bass is not a new name in the hedge fund management public domain. He came into the spotlight when he started Hayman Capital Management and made a fortune out of the 2008 subprime mortgage crisis. His name was not just a national sensation but rather an international one. Before joining the financial circles, he had also made a debut in film script writing and directing and got nominated for his role in the Sixth Sense. Until recently, people viewed him as a genius who had a magical touch in everything he did.

However, time has not been kind to him. He has continued to make one bad call after the other, and he never seems to get tired of being invited on television shows to offer his ‘professional’ opinion and analysis about the financial markets. As if making bad calls is not enough to tarnish his image as a respected hedge fund manager, he has involved himself with the wrong company. Of particular interest is his friendship with Argentinian despot Christina Kirchner whom he shares a thing in common; making bad call after bad call. Her bad calls have cost her people so much in economic terms.

Kyle is also known to have a liking for making quick money. His most recent quick money making scheme involves making pharmaceutical companies suffer by short selling their stocks and then challenging one or even more of their patents. The inevitable result is the pharma companies going down while he makes quick money. On their part, the pharma companies hike their drug prices and then become incapacitated in their efforts to fund medical research. Bass does not even care whether patients who depend on the drugs for survival are suffering or not. He is a perfect example of a professional who started so well in his career and along the way, made choices to ruin it.

Dan Newlin Helps Victims of Personal Injury

  • Posted on November 12, 2015 at 6:21 pm

At any given moment, your life can be drastically changed by a sudden accident. Even the most cautious people become accident victims due to the irresponsibility of others. If you are the victim of a personal injury, you face a long road to recovery. In addition to this, financial problems arise quickly and begin to build rapidly. To properly take care of yourself, you should put your personal focus on recovery while allowing a professional to handle the financial and legal aspects of your case.

Financial Aspects of Personal Injury

As mentioned above, personal injuries come with a great deal of financial problems. Some examples of injury related financial burdens include:

– hospital bills and doctors bills
– the cost of prescription medications
– the cost of long-term recovery programs
– losing wages due to missing work
– paying for repairs or replacements

These costs quickly add up no matter what kind of injuries you sustained. It is important to understand that you may not be responsible for paying for these fees. If your injury occurred due to the negligence of another person, that person may be legally required to pay for your expenses.

Legal Aspects of Personal Injury

Yeonmi Park Stands Tall in Shadow of North Korean Horrors

  • Posted on November 11, 2015 at 4:12 am

North Korea has become a sort of symbol for oppression, hatred, and government fed lies. Even know, with all eyes on the behavior of Kim Jong Il, little is being done to help the people that are suffering there. As a resident of a first world country, one with relative freedom, it can be hard to truly understand and quantify the terrors that North Koreans are going through. Yeonmi Park, a porcelain skinned and tiny young girl, survived North Korea and managed to escape and go on her own harrowing journey toward freedom. Her past, she fled NK when she was only 12, includes terrors that would look exaggerated on screen. Yet now, after speaking publicly of her past at the One Young World Summit, she is becoming a figurehead for a movement to stop the heinous crimes of the North Korean regime. When we think of oppressive governments our minds probably wander to a book like ‘1984’ as well as other dystopian works. Yet, those are just fictional stories that try to parse some social commentary in the form of entertaining fiction. They don’t strike such a resounding truth anywhere on the planet as the do back in North Korea. When Yeonmi Park spoke on the Guardian of the things that she saw people listened, learned, and came together at least in spirit to support her railing against Kim Jong Un and his regime. Park, who is now 21 years old and living in California, told of growing up in North Korea. She spoke of the heavy cloak of paranoia and fear that remained shrouded over all of the people. Yeonmi told listening ears about the repercussions for making an international phone call, singing, or watching a Hollywood movie: execution. With tears in her eyes and her little voice breaking, she spoke on BBC of watching her friend’s mother drug into the street and shot for watching an American movie. Park told listening ears that even “expressing doubt about the regime” could lead to generational executions being operated. Eventually things became too much, too bad, too scary for Park and her family. Yeonmi’s father was carted away to work in a forced labor camp, slavery essentially, and the remaining two women were left without any sort of protection to watch over them. By this point Yeonmi’s older sister had already fled on her own and now the last of the family was ready to follow suit. So Yeonmi and her mother found a human smuggler to get them into China, navigating around armed guards, and it was there that life took a huge and violent curveball. Yeonmi’s mother was raped in front of her by the Chinese smuggler and then both were sold off into human trafficking. What followed that ordeal was years of suffering, both physical and emotional torture. Eventually the women managed to escape, via the Gobi desert, and make it to safety in Mongolia. Most victims of North Korea are too scared to speak out over what is happening, for fear of government reprisal. Yeonmi Park is not scared, and that is why she deserves all of our support.
