How does the art market work? Who are the beneficiaries and who are the losers? Initiating an analysis through research, round table discussions and commissions, Venice Agendas intends to explore the impact of the art market on the territory and environment that artists, institutions, curators and writers have to navigate to develop, create, present, promote and discuss contemporary artwork.
Visual artists, artist groups and collectives are invited to apply to contribute to the project, through either making and contributing a work for a publication, or proposing a collaborative project for presentation at a location of their choice. The selection panel includes: Terry Smith (artist), Mark Segal (curator), Gilane Tawadros (curator, writer), David Hevey (film maker, CEO Shape Arts,) Chantelle May Purcell (Venice Agendas, Curator Acrylicize), Peter Jenkinson OBE and Shelagh Wright.
