In its two-day conference, this 2020 edition will aim at understanding the current art panorama by reviewing the evolution of the art market in the past years, while trying to look forward, analyzing coming generations and new approaches for the gallery business. The programme will encompass some of the most relevant matters in the today's agenda, such as a market for the millennials, the state of online sales, the evolving gallery model, sustainability in the art market, the shifting tastes and dedication of collectors, and new approaches to the gallery business. Other key sessions will be dedicated to analyze the growing market for Middle Eastern art and the circulation of artists' film and video at a commercial level.
