COLLECTORS, ARTISTS, and GALLERIES need to think about the future of their works and collections.

  • Art fairs and the auction world vs. the gallery world
  • The importance of dealers banding together to create events
  • Thinking ahead as an artist
  • Thinking ahead as a collector
  • Protecting yourself and your art pieces when entrusting them to a gallery (e.g. the risk of foreclosure)
  • The importance of filing UCC
  • The importance of a formal tracking system
  • Balancing commercial viability with choosing pieces you like
