Talk: How much for that banana duct-taped to the wall?
29 January 2021
3.00pm – 4.00pmZoom webinar
This talk takes a closer look at a topic that all facets of the art world have, throughout history and until today, wrestled with – the value of art. It examines how art is valued in the art market and how it is collected, that seems to fly in the face of the common sense of the general public. This discussion also positions the topic in light of art history, from the time of Dada pioneer Marcel Duchamp until now, touching on notions of conceptual art.
Speakers include Sandy Ma (International Specialist, Phillips), Jasdeep Sandhu (Director, Gajah Gallery) and Jim Amberson (Art Collector and S.E.A. Focus Advisory Committee), moderated by Elaine Ng (Editor and Publisher, ArtAsiaPacific).
