Reflections on the Contemporary Art Ecosystem
Keynote Speech led by Marc Spieler
Monday, 2 November 2015 | 10.00h-11.30h
Art Basel‘s global director will offer an in-depth examination of the major shifts that affect the lives of galleries today, including:
The ever-expanding encroachment of the auction houses on gallery territory.
The challenge of balancing fairs and gallery programmes, dealing digitally.
The phenomenal speed with which the market devours young stars.
The shifting nature of collectors.
And the internationalization of the art markets.
Clearly, the gallerists who will survive must be agents of change rather than victims of circumstance. But what must they change – and how can they do that while remaining true to themselves and their artists?
