Talking Galleries is an international symposium for gallerists and art professionals designed specifically to target those issues that concern and impact the gallery practice. The forum focuses on how gallerists have to adapt to new realities shaped by the economic downturn, the rapidly changing technology and the shifting values of the traditional marketplace.

Barcelona will display an open platform where professionals share experiences, build new effective knowledge and search together for answers. A meeting of colleagues that goes above and beyond the commercial side of the art business and highlights central issues in the world of galleries, producing meaningful contents for a global community of art professionals in the frame of a non-selling environment.

Georgina Adam, Financial Times art specialist, will conduct the sessions that include, amongst others, renowed Ph.d. cultural economist Clare McAndrew, who will outline tomorrow’s art market; The Armory Show director Noah Horowitz with a diagnosis on the current conditions of the globalised art context; gallerist Claes Nordenhake discussing art fairs vs. non-fair models; collector Alain Servais with his thesis on the art ecosystem; and gallerists Jocelyn Wolff‘s experience on working outside the big structures.
