Breaking boundaries - local is the new global

The Art Newspaper X Cromwell Place - Live Talks
October 15, 2020

Globalisation has shaped the art market we know today, but will the current shift to the local be a help or hindrance to emerging markets in Africa and Asia? As Covid-19 drastically curtails air travel, the art world's global status is being radically revised. In this panel, dealers from Africa, Asia and the US will discuss how they grapple with running galleries for both local and international audiences, how the pandemic has impacted emerging markets and how they continue to foster cross-cultural dialogue as some borders remain closed. Featuring Rachel Lehmann, Sundaram Tagore, Rakeb Sile and Ayo Adeyinka. Moderated by Anny Shaw, contributing art market editor at The Art Newspaper. Presented in partnership with Cromwell Place.
