About Us ART+OBJECT was founded in early 2007 with the goal to bring a more contemporary voice to the Australasian auction scene. Directors Ben Plumbly and Leigh Melville bring decades of experience of the art and auction worlds together with significant business and professional achievements. A+O has pioneered the presentation of contemporary art and objects in an auction context; our very first auction set this direction and received great support from New Zealand collectors. A+O directors are regular contributors to industry journals, public speakers, media commentators and have sat on peer review panels to public art institutions. Since A+O's first auction in May 2007 the company has offered over 100 catalogues of Important Paintings, Contemporary Art, Photography, Modern Design, Decorative Arts, Rare Books, Asian Art and major private collections.
