In April 2019, members of the visual arts community will gather in Tribeca at the inaugural Art World Conference, an annual convening of artists and arts professionals focused on career development, empowerment, and the sharing of practical, actionable information on business and financial literacy to build and sustain careers in the arts.
Through panel discussions, conversations, and workshops led by 40+ experts in the field, Art World Conference will address many of the opportunities and challenges faced by visual artists who are transforming the creative sector and culture-at-large. Topics will range from contracts, negotiation, taxes, managing debt, real estate, and investing to new technologies, public projects, legacy planning, and growing audience.
Dexter Wimberly (AWC Founder and independent curator) and Heather Bhandari (AWC Creative Director and co-author of the leading professional development guide for artists, Art/Work), have assembled a who’s who of artists and arts professionals to present at the conference along with legal and financial experts. Presenters include keynote speaker Deana Haggag (President and CEO, United States Artists); Susan Delvalle (Executive Director, Creative Capital); artist Mickalene Thomas; Larry Ossei-Mensah (Senior Curator, Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit); Patton Hindle (Senior Director of Arts, Kickstarter); writer Antwaun Sargent; Kay Takeda (Senior Director of Artist Programs, Joan Mitchell Foundation); among many others. Art World Conference is fiscally sponsored by NYFA.
Art World Conference will take place April 25–27, 2019 at New York Law School in Tribeca.
