TIAMSA will be represented by Olav Velthuis, TIAMSA president and Johannes Nathan, TIAMSA Chair.
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?

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.
