Cultureshock has worked with the Sotheby’s magazine, website, social media, film and global partnerships teams for the past decade. We have produced content both on and offline to engage and inform the Sotheby’s community of the world’s top collectors. We have also introduced advertisers and sponsors to Sotheby’s who have gone on to become valuable partners and expanded audiences across mutually beneficial collaborations.


Sotheby’s Magazine and Sotheby’s Preferred are distributed globally and published eight times per year to the Sotheby’s top-spending collectors. Our services include media sales across both titles, with representatives in London, New York and LA.


Cultureshock has produced a range of films for Sotheby’s over the years including a regular guide to forthcoming exhibition openings from around the world, often going on location to important art events, such as the Venice BIennale. In 2017, Sotheby’s commissioned Cultureshock to create a three-part film series at the 57th Venice Biennale with Tim Marlow, artistic director of the Royal Academy of Arts, London.

In the first of a three-part series, Tim Marlow shares his opening-day impressions from the centre of the action – the national pavilions.


We work with the Sotheby’s content team to support them in provide blogging and social media assets for Sotheby’s on location, most recently at the Venice Biennale.


We work closely with the Sotheby’s marketing team to publish special supplements that are distributed with the Financial Times, which serve to raise awareness of forthcoming high-profile auctions. We generate bespoke content and design the magazine according to the Sotheby’s values and house style.
