To coincide with Shanghai Art Week, the ICA and NYU Shanghai presents the second annual “Art and …” panel discussion, this year focusing on the question of value. People often ask, “How is the value of art determined?” Most often they are referring to the price of an artwork. The answer to this question still eludes most industry insiders, let alone those outside of the art world.
To help demystify and also challenge the valuation and pricing of art, “Art and Value” presents the perspectives of Svetlana Kharchenkova, a cultural sociologist who has studied the emergence of the Chinese contemporary art market; MEI Jianping, a financial economist who developed the industry’s standard fine art price index; Olav Velthuis, an economic sociologist who has written several books on the contemporary art market and has studied the emergence and development of markets in the BRIC-countries (Brazil, Russia, India and China); and WU Kejia, an art market specialist and author of the 2019 TEFAF Chinese Art Market Report.
The panel discussion will be moderated by Maya Kramer, NYU Shanghai Clinical Assistant Professor of Arts.
