Red Dot Fair panel discussions

March 23, 2008 at 9:40 am (art, blog, blogging, culture, personal, thoughts)

There’s two panel discussions at the Red Dot Fair next week that I thought I’d bring your attention to…

One: Bloggers and Their Impact on the Art World
Quote from their site:

Sunday, March 30th
11:00 AM
Bloggers and Their Impact on the Art World.
There’s now more art coverage in the blogosphere than in conventional publications. Do we handle this responsibility with conventional journalistic standards or something that’s faster and looser as befits an instantaneous medium? How do we manage the formidable network that has developed around and because of us? Where do we go from here?

Moderator: Joanne Mattera, painter, Joanne Mattera Art Blog. Panelists: Edward Winkleman, Winkleman Gallery and Edward_Winkleman blog; Carol Diehl, painter and critic, Artvent; Paddy Johnson, blogger, Art Fag City; C-Monster, freelance writer whose identity will be revealed at the event; Sharon Butler, artist/writer/professor, Two Coats of Paint.

And two: Art Fairs: Practical Considerations and Strategies for the Future
(starring MEEE!!!!)

Sunday, March 30th
3:30 PM
Art Fairs: Practical Considerations and Strategies for the Future.
Representatives from all sectors – artist, dealer, curator, consultant, collector, the media – will discuss such questions as: Are we all still benefitting? Can the experience be improved? Are there too many fairs? Is the vetting process effective? Is the proliferation of art fairs putting too much pressure on artists, dealers, collectors and the market in general? How is the market affected?

Moderator: Margaret Mathews-Berenson. Independent Curator/Art Advisor. Panelists: Brooke Mason, The Art Newspaper; Douglas Maxwell, Collector; Amy Wilson, Artist; Sique Spence, Director, Nancy Hoffman Gallery.

Directions, details, etc on the Red Dot site linked above. Stop by and say hi if you see me!

    Sounds like an interesting group of panel discussions. I wish I could go. Alas… I must work. All this work stuff is cutting into my time enriching myself with the art world and all its glories!
