The current issues of the art market in galleries

On the occasion of Fine Arts Paris & la Biennale, this discussion moderated by Guy Boyer, editorial director of Connaissance des Arts, focused on the current challenges facing galleries. 

Conference organized by Connaissance des Arts, with the Syndicat National des Antiquaires and the Comité professionnel des galeries d’art.

It was held in the conference room of the Musée des Arts Décoratifs (MAD)
111 rue de Rivoli, 75001 Paris

Issues related to the antique art market, such as the provenance of objects or the use of ivory in restoration, were addressed by Anisabelle Berès and Anthony Meyer. 

The competition between galleries and auctions, the relationship between galleries and museums, the deployment of galleries in the suburbs or abroad, the future of fairs and shows and the slowing down of the art market are among the main themes addressed by Marion Papillon and Benoît Sapiro.

This was a discussion and not an ex cathedra presentation to address the current situation of the art market and galleries in France.
