Round Table Discussion

How to Make Money on Contemporary Art in Russia

10:00 — 11:30
Russian Museum of Ethnography, Conference Hall 4/1 Inzhenernaya st., St. Petersburg

Today, contemporary art is not only business and investment for some and cultural leisure for others. Being a developed and dynamic art scene, it is also a key factor influencing the image of the city. The appearance of an international contemporary art fair is a key major symptom signifying that the city is becoming an important art center. There is no such fair in St. Petersburg yet, while this September Moscow hosted the 7th edition of Cosmoscow. The discussion within the forum will be based on a case study format. Summing up the results of the latest edition, the organizers and participants of the fair will answer questions about how to make money off art, attract collectors, art lovers and art professionals, and discuss current trends in the global art market.
