Questions explored in the two day event will include: how the art market shapes the ways in which contemporary art is made public; the impact of money on “autonomous” artistic production; the relations between structures of the art market and broader questions of contemporary financing; the position of artistic labor within the logic of the capitalist market; the relation between contemporary art market and cultural and arts institutions; the impact of private sponsorship and changing fund-raising conditions on artistic production and the institutions in which contemporary art is exhibited and disseminated. The event will be free of charge.
