A fascinating event will be held in Milan on April 9, 2016 on the current perspective of the art market in contemporary Italy.  I cannot make it, but it promises to be a worthwhile event for anyone able to attend.  Market-focused discussions like this are an essential component of a sophisticated understandingof the current situation.

Le prospettive del mercato dell'arte in Italia

The growth of modern and contemporary art necessarily must also happen through the creation of a cultural and economic network whose concrete formulation involves forms of protection, policies of value assignment and processes of bureaucratic and administrative simplification not completely realized in Italy.  This event offers a moment of discussion among the main stakeholders, to outline an ambitious perspective of reform in our country, in order to promote our artistic heritage.

A Moving History: Museums and Time-Based Arts

Artists have always been actively engaged with the cinema, theatre, dance and performance of their time but this has not been mirrored in the ways museums collect and display an artist's work. Recognition of this has been one of the big changes in museum culture in the last decade. How will inclusion of these practices in museum exhibitions and collections influence, expand, or rewrite cultural histories of the past and future?
