The Fundamentals of Art
Panel discussion on the logistical, business and ethical factors interior designers should be considering beyond just the purchase of an artwork, in this ever-changing world of Pandemics and Brexits.
Decorex is the world-famous London Interior Design Show, bringing together top interior designers, furniture makers, lighting designers, artists and craftspeople to showcase their products and brands. This year, 2020, it will be fully hosted online.
Date: Tuesday 17 November
Time: 11.30 am
Panellists: Brian Woulfe (Moderator), Tova Ossad, Giovanni Sard, Renata Kaminker. Interior Designers are always expected to incorporate art into their designs, but now that the world is changing and there is even less interaction in forums such as art fairs, this panel will address the basics of what interior designers should be considering beyond just the purchase of an artwork.
Art Insurance, Transport & Conservation
By speaking with experts in the fields of transport, insurance, and conservation, attendees can gain further perspective on what to consider after you or your client decides that they want to purchase a piece of art.
Questions will include, but will not be limited to:
- Is insurance a one-size-fits-all model?
- What is the effect of Brexit on transport and insurance?
- How can I tell the difference between a helpful condition report and an ineffective one?
- What are my options if I do not want my art in my home anymore?
