About FT Live
Last year saw record art sales, and the past 20 years have seen significant changes in the market. Art institutions have had to adapt to diminishing funding, whilst technological advances and an expanding calendar of fairs have contributed to the broadening reach for artists. Demographics and diversity are also driving shifts. Against this backdrop are increasing costs and complexity, issues around restitution and provenance, sustainability, philanthropy, jurisdictions and tax for collections, copyright concerns and AI implications.
The Business of Art Summit will bring together the art world including artists, gallerists, fair owners, dealers, collectors, auction houses, art advisers, consultants and appraisers, as well as other service providers, including shippers, storage providers, and framers.
