Aesthetica - Future Now Symposium panel chaired by Flowers Gallery Head of Communications and curator of Photography Hannah Hughes
7 Mar – 8 Mar 2019
Future Now Symposium 2019
We are currently living in a time of globalisation, expansion and media saturation. There have been considerable shifts in civilisation in the Information Age – we now communicate with each other instantly, yet with an alarming level of disconnect. Through panel discussions, lectures and portfolio reviews, The Future Now Symposium is an exploration of 21st century culture through the mechanism of art. This two-day event brings together key institutions, galleries and publications for discussion surrounding the most pressing issues from today’s creative industries. Through imaginative debates, career advice and cultural engagement, Future Now is a platform for idea generation.
As part of Thursday's symposium Flowers Gallery Head of Communications and curator of Photography Hannah Hughes will chair a panel discussion on the business of art.
The Business of Art: How the Art Market Influences All
Thursday 7 March 12:30-13:30
De Grey Lecture Theatre
Auction houses, galleries, collectors and fairs influence market trends and ultimately what determines success. What is this ecosystem and how does it control the business of art? How far does the media play a role in determining the value of a given work? What does this mean for artists and gallerists who are just starting out?
Panel Discussion: Chiswick Auctions; Flowers Gallery; Huxley-Parlour Gallery; London Art Fair; Moniker International Art Fair & START Art Fair.
