27 January 2023 | Evolutions in Collecting Art: Practices and Challenges
It's artgenève next week - which means the Responsible Art Market annual conference takes place at the fair on Friday 27 January 2023.
This year's conference will focus on collectors. Collectors are the life blood of the art market. As collecting habits evolve, what practices and challenges do collectors and patrons face in their interactions with artists, galleries and institutions?
This 7th annual RAM conference aims to demystify the collecting journey, unpacking the ethics of collecting contemporary art and the issues which arise in lending to and funding art institutions.
