YouTube: TIAMSA at Art Basel on 15 June 2017

Late in 2016 TIAMSA and Art Basel envisaged to co-organize a round table on the theme of „Transparency in the Art Market“. Organized by Art Basel in co-operation with TIAMSA, this conversation finally entitled “Public / Private – New Rules: Is the Artworld a Mature Industry?“ was held on 15 June 2017 and is now available on YouTube.

TIAMSA President Olav Velthuis (University of Amsterdam), Lindsay Pollock (Editor-in-Chief of Art in America 2011-2017), Bob Rennie (Art Collector), Adam Sheffer (President, The Art Dealers Association of America) and Pierre Valentin (Partner in charge of the Art & Cultural Property Law Group, Constantine Cannon) engaged in a lively discussion moderated by Andrász Szántó (Consultant in the fields of art, media, cultural policy). Though held in the morning hours, the event was very well attended and got media coverage in “Il Sole 24 Ore” (Milan) through an informative article by Silvia Simoncelli (25 June 2017, no. 768, p. 20 – alas not available online, but we are hoping to reproduce the article here in one way or another).

Enjoy watching the conversation here!

 

 

TIAMSA at this year’s Art Basel, Basel, 15 June, 17

Art Basel and TIAMSA are teaming up in a round table (‘Conversation‘) entitled ‘New Rules: Is the Artworld a Mature Industry?’ TIAMSA will be represented by Olav Velthuis, TIAMSA president, who will discuss the subject with Lindsay Pollock, Bob Rennie, Adam Sheffer and Pierre Valentin; the conversation will be moderated by András Szántó. The round table will take place at this year’s Art Basel mother fair in Basel (Messeplatz 10, 4005 Basel, Switzerland). Johannes Nathan, TIAMSA Chair, will also be present.

Public/ Private | New Rules: Is the Artworld a Mature Industry?

This talk addresses the rapidly changing business environment of art. Across the artworld, established but opaque ways of doing business are increasingly seen as a hindrance, not an advantage. Governments are eager to enact regulations, investment-minded collectors and analysts are pressing for greater transparency. Information is flowing more freely: It is no longer a question of whether data becomes available, but when, where, and on whose terms. The institutional sector is also under scrutiny, as funders demand accountability and clarity about the role of private interests. How will the artworld keep up with these developments? What can be done to modernize and professionalize the market without stifling its dynamism? What are the new rules of the art economy to follow?

Lindsay Pollock, former Editor-in-Chief, Art in America, New York; Olav Velthuis, Professor, Department of Sociology at University of Amsterdam, and President, TIAMSA, Amsterdam; Adam Sheffer, Partner, Cheim & Read, and President, Art Dealers Association of America, New York; Pierre Valentin, Partner, Constantine Cannon LLP, London; Bob Rennie, Collector, Vancouver.

Moderator: András Szántó, Author and Cultural Consultant, New York.

First Conference of TIAMSA, The International Art Market Studies Association
London, 14 and/or 15 July 2017

Art Fairs are booming. Established fairs grow and proliferate at break neck speed, new venues are mushrooming, and the clientele is increasingly diverting its attention from the permanent gallery spaces to these events. The art fairs’ current global outreach and their diversity seem unprecedented, yet they have a long history that goes back at least to the early modern period. This conference of the recently founded International Art Market Studies Association aims to elucidate the art fair’s phenomenal evolutions through a multi-disciplinary approach.
