Within Art Dubai 2023, the Art Business Conference will be held for the first time in the Middle East. The Conference was founded in 2014 and is the primary international platform for the discussion of important questions regarding today’s art market. Every year, it takes place in London, New York, and Shanghai. The Art Business Conference brings together art professionals, galleries, advisors, museum directors, curators, collectors, wealth managers, and family offices to discuss topics of current interest concerning running an collection of art or business connected to art.
The conference will be dedicated to sustainability. As the world of art recovers from the pandemic, the appetite for art exhibitions, travel, and art collecting is greater than ever. The participants of the conference will talk about the ways how art institutions can make the art world become more sustainable.
The Art Business Conference will be held on 4 March 2023; it will start at 10:00 AM and end at 1:00 PM. The Welcome and Introduction part will be held by Benedetta Ghione, Executive Director of Art Dubai, and Stephanie Dieckvoss, Chair of the Art Business Conference.
The panel discussion “Sustainability and the Art World” will feature Nicky Ure (culture sector strategist and Managing Director of Ure Culture); Prateek Raja and Cilène Andréhn (Gallery Climate Coalition members); Mariam Zulfiqar (Director of Artangel); and Elizabeth Dellert (Chief Business Development Officer of Cromwell Place).
