Given the success met by the Pioneers of the Global Art Market session at Christie’s Education’s Creating Markets, Collecting Art conference, Christie’s has convened a follow-up symposium in New York to continue the investigation into the expansion of the market for Impressionist and modern art.
Creating Markets, Collecting Art was held in London in July 2016 to commemorate the 250th anniversary of Christie’s and the 30th anniversary of the Christie’s Education Trust. The session Pioneers of the Global Art Market: International Dealer Networks from the Mid-Nineteenth through the Mid-Twentieth Century, looks at how Paris-based galleries made a concerted effort to expand globally and build international alliances, tapping into the ever-growing pool of discerning collectors in northern and eastern Europe, the UK, and across the Atlantic.
The 2017 symposium has been convened and will be moderated by Christel Hollevoet-Force, PhD, Associate Research Curator in Modern and Contemporary Art at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. This two-day event will be organized and hosted by Veronique Chagnon-Burke, PhD, Academic Director at Christie’s Education New York. It will comprise 11 talks, including opportunities for Q&As and open discussions. Sessions will look at seminal dealers such as Durand-Ruel and Kahnweiler, artists like Cézanne and Picasso, and names still active in the art market, such as Gimpel and Lefevre.
Speakers include Yaelle Biro, Julia May Boddewyn, Ambre Gauthier, Diana J. Kostyrko, Christina Brandberg, Christel Hollevoet-Force, MaryKate Cleary, Frances Fowle, Paolo Serafini, David Challis, Laura Dickey Corey and Jennifer A. Thompson.
