The Art Fund Debate: The Value of Art- What's Behind the Price Tag?
| Business Design Centre
The Art Fund is delighted to be working with the 2008 London Art Fair. Together we have organised a variety of events beginning with The Art Fund Debate.
This lively panel discussion will explore many aspects of art and its value- real or imagined, social or personal. It will consider the art market and its role in society, as well as the monetary and emotional value of contemporary art to the collector, the dealer, the critics and the public.
More broadly, as arts organisations struggle to secure funding for new acquisitions from the government, this debate will ask whether contemporary art is overvalued.
