Join us for a two-part roundtable webinar series on the future of the global art market, featuring guests from Hauser & Wirth, HMRC, Demif Gallery and The Society of London Art Dealers.

Presented by Gareth Fletcher of Sotheby’s Institute of Art, the series will explore change and transformation in the art market, from new technologies, ways of viewing and buying art, and market supervision, to digital art crime, the rise of African artists, and the illicit trade in art and antiquities. 

In our second webinar, Regulation and Risk, Alan Patrick from HMRC and Sarah Allen from Hauser & Wirth will look at the emerging landscape of art market regulation in the UK and globally and new areas of risk around digital art crime, cryptocurrencies, and the illicit trade in art and antiquities.

Schedule: 6:00 p.m. – 6:45 p.m. (GMT)

Shape of the New – Global Art Market Webcast Series

#ShapeoftheNew – Virtual Art Exhibition

We've partnered with ArtCan, a non-profit art organization, and CasildArt, an art agency, to organize a virtual art exhibition that responds to the Shape of the New theme. Work by a diverse range of artists across painting, photography and video will be shown, and expect to see bold statements and deep reflection, on the shape of things to come. Following the first webinar on Thursday 11 March, attendees will be invited to an exclusive preview of the virtual exhibition where they can find out more about the artists who have come together for this exciting and timely collaboration. On Friday, March 12 at 6:00 p.m. GMT, Kroll will also host a live interview on the virtual exhibition platform with Emma Jacobs, journalist at the Financial Times, and Tiffanie Delune, an emerging artist, talking about art and renewal in the face of personal and global challenges. The virtual art gallery can be viewed here on Thursday, March 11 from 7:00 p.m.- 8:00 p.m. GMT.Shape of the New – Global Art Market Webcast Series Part 1- Markets and Makers
