Panel Discussion: Market Is the Medium – ‘Making It’ in the NYC Art World

26 MAY

Join POWarts for the panel discussion Market Is the Medium – ‘Making It’ in the NYC Art World at NEWD Art Show on June 6th at 3:30pm, during Bushwick Open Studiosweekend.

POWarts’ panel will explore the market as a medium—for artists, galleries, and the art world generally. While there have been many conversations about the problems artists face sustaining a career in NYC with the high cost of living and education debt, this panel will instead explore ways market tools can be used creatively to form economic structures that make art work possible. Joining us will be artist Caroline Woolard, co-founder of BFAMFAPhD and New York City's first real estate investment cooperative;Magda Sawon, the founder of Postmasters GallerySarah Van Anden, a grants administrator who currently works at the NYC Department of Cultural Affairs; and a representative from the Goldman Sachs Urban Investment Group, which helps artists and arts organizations gain access to significant investment capital through tax-credit and other funding structures.
 
While in Bushwick for the panel, explore the NEWD Art Show and Bushwick Open Studios. Now in its second year, NEWD’s artist-centric mission serves as a counterpoint to the existing fair model with alternative modes of market engagement that supports artists and promotes their interests. The 2015 edition will highlight a number of critical issues related to the art market—such as the rise in speculative art buying and the disproportionate gallery underrepresentation of female artists—by giving focus to artist-curated initiatives and collaborative projects.

Bushwick Open Studios is a three-day annual arts and culture festival organized by the volunteer organization Arts in Bushwick. Now in its ninth year, this celebration of the neighborhood’s vibrant community and local art scene is free and open to the public. The festival will take place from June 5-7, 2015. Open studios hours vary per artist, so check the directory for precise times. Most studios are open 12pm – 7pm on Saturday and Sunday.
