Over the last 20 years, art galleries, dealers and collectors have used the Internet to experiment with techniques for viewing and buying art, some with more success than others. The emergence of art sales transacted fully online, whether by auction or direct purchase, raises many new questions for dealers, collectors and artists.
Collect + Art + Delete
brings together a distinguished art world panel to discuss the effects of e-commerce on the art market. This discussion will address the impact online art sales have on connoisseurship, gallery and auction house functions, transparency, and any shifts in who buys art and for what purpose.
