Art Is No Business?
Wednesday 28 March, 12.30pm - 4.00pm
Kingston School of Art, Knights Park Campus
Kingston upon Thames, KT1 2QJ
What do artists want? What do collectors want? What do institutions want?
Why are galleries necessary? Is there a model that embodies a greater co-dependency?
We'll discuss and examine models for showing and selling work and invite all-comers
to participate in this open forum.
Participants include Judith Carlton (Director, Cafe Gallery Projects), Iain Robertson
(Author Understanding Art Markets: Inside the World of Art and Business, 2015), Rachel
Williams (Owner/Director Vilma Gold), Matt Hale (Artist, Co-founder City Racing 1988-98
and co-host The Art Monthly Talk Show), Samuel Levack and Jennifer Lewandowski
(Artists, Founders French Riviera) and Caroline Douglas (Director, Contemporary Art Society).
Organised by Bruce Haines (Ancient & Modern, & Mayfair) & supported by TECHNE funded
PhD students Emma Gradin, Rosie Ram and Wayne Binitie.
