The traditional cultural validation path is in shambles while at no time in history there was as much vested interest in the arts. Consider only a few decades ago, when auctions were for the few, no contemporary artwork had ever been sold for more than a million dollars and art historians called the shots when it came to creating meaning and influence. The shifts are rapid, the roles are changing fast. What better place to talk about the art market than at Art Dubai, positioning itself in a region which has become the focus of some of these major transformations and challenges the art world as a whole is facing today. In conversation with Dr. Thomas Girst, Global Head of Cultural Engagement, BMW Group, is curator and co-founder of Art Reoriented, Dr. Sam Bardaouil; Director of Experimenter Gallery Priyanka Raja and artist Chafa Ghaddar.
