Venue: Room 101, Kingston School of Art, Knights Park Campus
Date and Time: Wednesday 28th March 2018, 11:00-17:00
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. With opening remarks by Rosie Ram (Techne PhD RCA), participants includeJudith Carlton (Director Cafe Gallery Projects), Iain Robertson (author Understanding Art Markets: Inside the World of Art and Business, 2015), Matt Hale (artist, co-founder City Racing 1988-98 and co-host The Art Monthly Talk Show) and Caroline Douglas (Contemporary Art Society). Organised by Bruce Haines (Ancient & Modern, & ex Mayfair) with Samuel Levack and Jennifer Lewandowski (French Riviera), supported by TECHNE funded Royal College of Art PhD students Emma Gradin and Wayne Binitie with Kingston School of Art.
