The Art Business Conference 2017 to lead with India focus

The Art Business Conference returns to London on Wednesday 6th September 2017, opening with a panel that will explore how digital media is shaping the landscape and evolution of cultural consumption in India.  Several of Flint’s clients and collaborators, Neha Kirpal, Founder of India Art Fair, and Abha Housego, Head of of Saffronart, London, will appear along with Alan Gemmell, Director of the British Council, India, on a panel moderated by Melanie Gerlis (Financial Times).

The Conference will include further debates exploring a range of subjects such as new business models for UK Private Museums and Foundations featuring chair of the Auckland Castle Trust, Jonathan Ruffer, discussing his vision for the pioneering cultural development at Auckland Castle in County Durham, another of Flint’s current projects.

Other sessions will span topics from an overview of the background and evolution of the Association of Art Historians’ campaign work in education; a look at the real costs of artwork packing and conservation; and a debate on whether Brexit could create an opportunity for the British Art industry.

Georgina Adam (Financial Times & The Art Newspaper) returns as conference chair.
