Upcoming Talk

Does the art world need transparency?

24 September 2019

"Transparency": a hot topic in the art world; a buzzword that inspires excitement from those in favour of more of it, and loud objection from those who feel opacity is core to the inner workings of the industry. However, the conversation around transparency has mostly focused on pricing: should the explicit cost of art sales be made public, or should they not. And yet, "transparency" has a much broader meaning, and can be applicable to many facets of the art industry. This panel will explore the concept of transparency beyond just pricing, with panelists who have contrasting points of view for what is sure to make a lively discussion.

Moderated by Bernadine Brocker Wieder, Vastari Co-founder, this will be a lively and topical debate.

Join us in London on Sept 24 for a panel discussion on this hot art world topic.
Tickets free, limited capacity, bookings essential.

Panelists:

Philip Hoffman, Founder & CEO of The Fine Art Group

Christine Bourron, Founder & CEO Pi‐eX

Ivan Macquisten, Writer, Commentator, Analyst, Collector
