Irina Moreno is launching a new series of lectures on various art topics. No prior art knowledge required. Lectures will be held in English at Mobius Art Gallery. They will be followed by Q&A sessions in Romanian and English.
Topics range from factors that determine value, art market players, art investment, managing a collection, reasons for the proliferation of art
fairs and the impact on disseminating and collecting art, a
behind-the-scenes look at art curating, delegated performance art. The
lectures will offer a glimpse into the mechanisms at play in the art
market unraveling aspects that go beyond the supply and demand
principle. Using different angles to look at the same phonemena, some
presentations will show participants how things appear when viewed
through the gallerist lens, the collector lens, the curator lens, the
art advisor lens, while others will offer a bird’s eye view of the art
market, zooming in on several hotspots in Europe and North America. By
dissecting the relationships between various art market players and
explaining their roles using real examples, the lectures aim to increase
awareness and understanding hence helping viewers distinguish good from
bad beyond the like/dislike dichotomy.
