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!
