Panel discussion followed by audience Q&A and networking

This is a brand new talk series being launched by Be Smart About Art that explores a rapidly evolving industry.
You think the art world has already shifted a lot in the past few years? Hold tight, it’s just begun…

Three years ago, Be Smart About Art hosted a panel discussion looking at the pitfalls of hosting pop-up shows. Back then, this was a new term in the art world. Today, it’s a reality for an increasing number of dealers and curators. Even the term ‘Gallerist’ now applies to those not just with bricks and mortar spaces, but also those with purely online galleries.

We are presenting  a panel of industry leaders when it comes to this 21st Century gallery model.

The talk will consider creative opportunities in staging pop-ups – as well as challenges. But not only that, the pop-up will be considered as an all-encompassing art business model.

Want to look into the rapidly approaching future? Thinking about travelling the world showing art?
