Acquiring Differently Colloquium
The Acquiring Differently colloquium examines the role of art acquisition in today’s galleries and museums.
The conference outlines some of the innovative practices that are changing the standards and practices of art acquisition. While new approaches to acquisition are becoming increasingly widespread in all areas of collecting, they are also giving rise to innovative ways of thinking and doing that are having a transformative impact on galleries, museums, art, and society as a whole.
The event will take place in English and French. Simultaneous interpretation is available in both languages.
Please note that this is a hybrid event. Attend onsite at the Gallery, or watch the live broadcast from home via Zoom.
