Talking Galleries / ARCO Panel
The Polarisation of The Art Market, by Georgina Adam
Towards an ecosystem of resistance, by Alain Servais
Art Journalist Georgina Adam, and Belgium collector Alain Servais shared a debate space during ARCOMadrid Fair 2013, where TALKING GALLERIES was invited to present a preview of the contents to be tackled at the BARCELONA SYMPOSIUM 2013. The conversation revolved around two main axes: the current polarization of the art market and the notion of an ecosystem of resistance, respectively.
