Event Details

Relationships between gallerists and artists are close commitments and collaborations that may involve passion and aversion, trust and legal relations, great risks and money profits for both parts. It is a very particular type of relationship that gallerists really have to cultivate while thinking about possible collateral consequences. Gallerists need to be available in order to respond effectively to the artists demands and listen to what they want to convey. The art gallery’s mission is to help artists finding their place -in terms of audience and market- in the context of the contemporary art production, even if the market is reluctant.

Gallerists therefore become interfaces at different levels for the artists, supporting them and also helping them deal with their ambition, anxieties, emulation, rivalries, etc. Due to this proximity with the artists, gallerists act as their managers, advisors and professional developers. They not only have to deal with the tensions of the creativity process itself, but also with propositions coming from museums and institutions, art fairs and even other galleries. It’s necessary to have entrepreneurial skills along with intellectual and critical capacities in order to hold these pressures and at the same time cope up with the necessities of building up the artist’s career.

This panel will have representatives of some internationally recognised contemporary art galleries in order to share their best practices, models and modi operandi.
