Amsterdam Art is pleased to invite you to a conference organized in collaboration with ArtReview

The conference will address how renewed debates around the role of the museum in society, the opening up of the canon to non-Western and neglected art histories, and the influence of emerging domestic and international markets are shaping the production, exhibition and reading of contemporary art. Taking part in the conference are influential local and international artists, museum directors, critics, curators and collectors including Clémentine Deliss (curator and publisher), Rafaël Rozendaal (visual artist), Kenny Schachter (writer, curator and art dealer), Luise Faurschou (Art 2030 + Faurschou Art Resources), Annette Schönholzer (coach and consultant at .connect the dots and former director of Art Basel), Patricia Kaersenhout (visual artist and activist) and many more. 

Through international trade, colonialism and liberalism the city of Amsterdam played a critical part in shaping the world we live in today as well as the cultural inheritance of the West. This provides a compelling starting point for a series of talks and discussions about the role of art in contemporary society, the rewriting of art history and the future of the art market. The talks will offer art professionals the opportunity to join these discussions and come up with concrete suggestions about how to create an art histories and systems that reflects the values of a progressive society.
