Think Tank Barcelona / 2012
Some of the issues tackled over the meeting were: Why is TALKING GALLERIES a pertinent event? What can a meeting like TG make for the gallery sector? How can it help professionalizing the gallerist practice? What sort of issues should be approached in the next TALKING GALLERIES? How to bring in / incorporate outside discourses to the gallerist practice? What challenges are facing European galleries nowadays?
Check the TALKING GALLERIES / BARCELONA SYMPOSIUM 2013 website to follow-up the conversations that were started at the Think Tank.
