The Discussion:
The promotion and sale of art is often presented as a contentious issue with no straightforward method, process or system.

Rules and ‘understandings’ for purchasing art have seemingly developed and continue to develop according to a nebulous set of arrangements.

However, there are guidelines and they can be deciphered. They also can be adapted to the increasingly normative media of installation, performance and moving image in emerging artists’ practice.

Through a growing community of galleries, commissioning public organisations and an increasingly educated audience, the possibilities of sustaining creative practices centred on new and ephemeral media are evolving.

Made in Arts London has invited a number of key professionals – specialising in the creation, commissioning, promotion and sale of new media, moving image, performance and installation – to discuss the topic from a number of perspectives; the artist, the curator, the gallerist and the consultant.

The panel will answer questions from members of the audience.

The panel discussion will be followed by a drinks reception. Drinks generously provided by our partners at Brewdog.
