The workshop Gatekeepers in the Art Market is part of the International Workshops Series “Tools for the Future: Researching art market Practices from Past to Present,” jointly founded by Elisabetta Lazzaro (Business School for the Creative Industries – University of the Creative Arts, UK), Nathalie Moureau (University Paul Valéry, Montpellier 3) and Adriana Turpin (IESA Art & Culture, Paris and the Society for the History of Collecting, London). This 8th edition of the “Tools for the Future: Researching art market Practices from Past to Present” workshop series – the first one to be held in America – will be organized in collaboration with LSU art history professor Darius A. Spieth.
Through individual presentations followed by group discussions, the workshop series aims at bringing together international scholars and professionals from different disciplines, periods of study and areas of practice to confront key issues and develop methodological approaches to analyze and interpret the structures, practices and principles of the art market. Established in June 2018, successive workshops have taken place in Montpellier, Utrecht, London, Rome, Ljubljana, Paris and Rotterdam and have covered topics such as art collectors, the artist as an entrepreneur, the formation and development of new markets, communication strategies, legislation and legal structures, finance, and markets for applied arts, artistic crafts and design.
