Contemporary Art and its Commercial Markets: A Report on Current Conditions and Future Scenarios

Tensta Träff, Hagstråket 13, Tensta

Saturday 28.1 at 14:00

Contemporary Art and its Commercial Markets is a symposium on the occasion of a report with the same title, exploring a number of interrelated institutional developments in the last decades which have had a significant impact on the way art is marketed and perceived by its audiences. The rise of the art fair, the internet and the increased competition of auction houses on the contemporary market both reflect and further propel the globalization and commercialization of the art world; the latter much to the dismay of numerous artists and critics who claim that commerce has an uneasy relationship with art production and perception. Participants include Noah Horowitz, Andrea Phillips, Olav Velthuis and Thea Westreich.



A Guiding Light

Liam Gillick/Anton Vidokle

Cinema Zita, Birger Jarlsgatan 37, Stockholm

Sunday 29.1 at 13:00

A Guiding Light, a film by Liam Gillick/Anton Vidokle, takes as its starting point a manifesto written by Gao Shiming, the Executive Curator of the latest Shanghai Biennial. The manifesto is an attack on the art system and its limiting monoculture and artists Gillick and Vidokle have responded by inviting a handful of emerging artists, curators and critics to interpret and extrapolate from the text itself. The 22-minute long film hovers between cultural criticism and soap, borrowing its title from the longest running soap opera on American television.

Lord's Pavilion

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time. Details of all hospitality options at Lord’s can be found on its website
