 TALKING GALLERIES. The think thank for galleries.

8th Barcelona Symposium

Panel discussion: "Young Money: Understanding Millennial Collectors"

Most galleries now understand the importance of connecting with a younger audience. But what if achieving that goal demands fundamental changes to the art market status quo? This session will explore how and why the average gallery's future depends on much more than just embracing online sales and social media.

Guest speakers Alexander Forbes (Associate Director, Corporate Development and Market Intelligence at Artsy); young entrepreneur and gallerist Joe Kennedy (Co-Founder, Unit London); collector and patron Kamiar Maleki, recently appointed Director of Volta NYC/Basel and Pulse Miami; and art strategy consultant Claudia Schachenmann (Founder, Bureaux Schachenmann) will engage in an enticing conversation moderated by Tim Schneider, art business editor at Artnet News and The Gray Market.  

Check out The Online Art Collector Report, published recently by Artsy and co-authored by Alexander Forbes.  

The panel discussion “Young Money: Understanding Millennial Collectors” is programmed for Monday 20th January, 2020, at 11.30am. 

Over the past few years, select analysts have proposed that the world's top athletic associations could be a useful guide for bringing sustainability to the gallery system. This talk will investigate where the professional-sports model succeeds, where it breaks down, and how galleries might implement its most valuable lessons—starting today.

In his new solo presentation at the Barcelona Symposium, Tim Schneider, art business editor at Artnet News and the mind behind the witty The Gray Market, will look at what galleries can learn from the world of sports.

Read a two-part article by Tim on this topic published at Artnet News here.  

The talk "Are Professional Sports the Role Model Galleries Need?" is programmed for Tuesday 21st January, 2020, at 12.45pm.
