The Barcelona-based nonprofit Talking Galleries and the art advisory firm Schwartzman & Associates, with Loring Randolph as Programming Director, announce the first edition of its New York art world symposium.  

Taking place on April 4 and 5, 2022, at the Gilder Lehrman Hall at The Morgan Library & Museum, the conference will tackle the significant issues facing the art world today, with an international roster of nearly 50 top-level speakers.

By bringing together museum directors, gallerists, curators, artists, scholars, journalists, non-profit leaders, auction house and art fair executives, the program will debate topics such as the impetus for institutional change in art museums; New York City’s position in the art world; responses to the turmoil in recent political and the climate crisis; developments in the art infrastructures of Africa and East Asia; trends in gallery practices; the ongoing rise of data-driven art sales; innovations in patronage; and the impact of digital art technologies.

Marking its first major in-person meeting since the onset of the pandemic, Talking Galleries New York will provide an invaluable occasion for exchange and debate around the art ecosystem after the two-year disruption.
