Presented by Gareth Fletcher of Sotheby’s Institute of Art, the series will explore change and transformation in the art market, from new technologies, ways of viewing and buying art, and market supervision, to digital art crime, the rise of African artists, and the illicit trade in art and antiquities.
In our first webinar, Markets and Makers, Edouard Ndeke of the Demif Gallery and Christopher Battiscombe CMG of The Society of London Art Dealers will discuss disruption in the art market and what this means for those who make, view, buy and sell art. With e-commerce, digital and online reshaping the art world, where will the pieces land?
