"State of the Art Market Today: A Conversation" at Talking Galleries Barcelona 2019
Tim Schneider, Founder, The Gray Market, and Art Business Reporter at artnet News
Simon de Pury, auctioneer, advisor, collector, and former co-founder of Phillips De Pury & Luxembourg
Kenny Schachter, dealer, collector, curator, artist, lecturer, and contributor to artnet News
A wide-ranging conversation covering everything from the HBO documentary The Price of Everything to auction-house guarantees to the perception of a middle-market gallery crisis, with two professionals who have been in the game for decades.
Editor’s Note: Ironically, this session, featuring three straight white guys, immediately followed another one on “Women Artists on the Market,” in which Vanessa Carlos of Carlos/Ishikawa justifiably declared, “No one wants to hear what a straight white man has to say right now.”
