Ever Gold [Projects] – Reimagining Artist/Dealer Relationships
January 30 @ 2:00 pm PST - 3:00 pm PST
Join us for a conversation about reimagining artist/dealer relationships with artist and former dealer Mieke Marple and artist manager and curator Maya Futrell. We will examine whether the model of gallery as both brick-and-mortar retail space and talent management is still relevant today.
In doing so, we will discuss the inefficiencies of such a model and how they promote white supremacy by functioning as barriers to entry, as well as how they contribute to the disparity between mega-galleries with several locations and single-gallery businesses. Lastly, we will look at how this model has negatively impacted artists by focusing on the short-term commodification of their work rather than the long term development of their careers.
