April 2, 6 - 8 pm, Christies Education, 1230 Avenue of the Americas, 20th Floor, New York, 10020 (Rockefeller Center). RSVP: by latest March 25, 2019.

Book 'You, Me and Art. Artists in the 21st Century'.

You, Me and Art. Artists in the 21st Century gives extraordinary insights into rich and diverse artistic practices of our time. Never has contemporary art been so popular as it is now, never has its audience been so wide. In the rapidly changing and vastly expanding art world, one thing has never changed: it is the artist who remains at the center of the artistic universe. In fascinating personal interviews, seventeen outstanding contemporary artists re-flect on what does it mean to be an artist today, providing material to analyze the most urgent questions of the current art system. What values should prevail? How to define the artist when the notions of shaman, revolutionary, and bohemian are no longer relevant? What is the relationship between artists and their public? As artists operate in close connection with curators, collectors, and gallerists, to complete the picture, Marta Gnyp has given voice to a few excellent actors from these sectors who speak about their vision of contemporary art and reflect on the changing post-war art system

Available January 2019, Skira Publishers.

Women in the Art World: The future is bright?

Part of Christie’s Education Conference 2018 Celebrating Female Agency in the Arts”, which celebrates the significant roles women have played and continue to play in the arts and their markets.

Sixteen sessions over two days explore women’s diverse contributions to the arts from a transnational and transhistorical perspective, reflecting global and historical diversity. Not advocating for a separate nor alternative history of art and its markets, the conference looks at the central role played by women in the creation, development, support and preservation of the arts and how their contribution has changed over time.

Sessions focus on women as artists, patrons and collectors of art and architecture, dealers and brokers, art historians and art critics as well as curators and preservers of culture. Including the presence of women in emerging and established art centers, historical aristocratic patronage, and the medieval period, the sessions will investigate a diverse range of topics.

The conference will take place at Christie’s, 20 Rockefeller Plaza in New York.

Educating Artists

Educating Artists? is a two-day symposium dealing with recent developments in artist education. Addressing different educational models, the relationship between artist, tutor & student, between theory and skills, while approaching the subject from an ‘outside’ and ‘inside’-perspective, the symposium attempts to reach for new and alternative methods in artist education.

Book 'Made in Mind'

The artist is a central figure in contemporary art. The ready-made concept conceived by Marcel Duchamp at the beginning of the 20th century opened up the possibility of calling every object an art object. This subversive act aimed at aesthetics was one of the milestones in forming the notion of the contemporary artist: a conceptual and visual multi-tasker, surrounded by an aura of magic-making and carrying the heavy burden of art historical tradition on his or her shoulders.
