4 March 2022 | Intermediaries and Sustainability in the Art Market


The 6th annual RAM conference will focus on intermediaries in the art market. This hybrid format conference will provide an opportunity to discover the work of a group of experts in the field, including a series of guidelines in the form of a practical guide. Following their presentation, several intermediaries will implement these guidelines by analysing a practical case study. The conference will also address the sustainability of the art market, exploring possible ways to reduce its carbon footprint. What does sustainability mean for the art world and what role can the market play in raising environmental awareness? How can more responsible practices be put in place? These questions will be at the heart of the discussions.


The Keynote lecture will be given by Sylvain Levy, DSLcollection, Paris. Speakers include:

  • Nicholas O'Donnell, Attorney-at-law, Boston

  • Anne Laure Bandle, Attorney-at-law, Geneva

  • Mathilde Heaton, Phillips, London

  • Victoria Rey-de-Rudder, Bonhams, Geneva
