Topic: “The Current State of the Art Market”
Editor of American Art Collector Magazine, Joshua Rose, will discuss art fairs, art auctions and the importance of the physical gallery space in the always changing art world.
The contemporary art world is in a continual state of flux. Auctions, art fairs and online resources all compete for the attention of the collectors while galleries continue to redefine their role in this ever changing art market. Where do collectors go these days to find works for their collection? What defines quality and value within all these spaces? Joshua Rose will address all of these issues in an open accessible way that will help collectors navigate these often confusing worlds.
