The International 3, a member of Contemporary Visual Arts Manchester (CVAM), is leading an information gathering exercise entitled 'Art Market Mapping'.
The purpose of Art Market Mapping is for the CVAM group to gain a shared understanding of members' activity in relation to collectors, collecting and the art-market. It will also record the aspirations of CVAM members with regards to this area of activity.
The project seeks to expose areas of expertise and overlap, to share models of good practice across the gorup, and to reveal areas of existing and potential collaboration.
The project will run until the end of April 2012, with a summary of findings being published shortly thereafter.
For more information about the programme, please contact The International 3.
As part of our ongoing partnership, we will be helping Visual Arts UK to disseminate information about initiatives that have a direct relevance to Turning Point Network members, posting information onto this News page.
The first of these posts is about Market Matters, a forthcoming event that Artquest, DACS and the Contemporary Art Society are running jointly. Market Matters is part of The New Economy of Art: a series of open discussions throughout 2011-12 focussing on economic developments and opportunities in the cultural sector. It explores the impact on artists, from the perspective of artists.
Market Matters will take place on Wednesday 14 March 2012, will explore the complex and overlapping motivations behind various kinds of ‘art market’ from commercial galleries, private dealers and auction houses to art fairs, online selling and gift economies. The debate will provoke thinking about how artistic practice intersects with and creates its own economies.
Speakers: Louisa Buck, Kate McGarry and Matt Roberts.
