Due to the popularity of last year’s panel event debut during Asian Art in London featuring high profile panelists including renowned Chinese art dealer Roger Keverne and Pamela Kember, Head of Arts and Learning at Asia House, Lyon & Turnbull and the Antiques Trade Gazette will join forces once again to host a second debate.
This year we will turn our attention to the future of the Asian Art market, bringing together three of the industry’s newest voices from different corners of the globe, to examine how the market is likely to evolve over the coming years, as the inevitable generational shift takes place and the market is in new hands. We are very privileged to announce that the panel discussion will be chaired by one of the most talented orators in Asian Art, Nixi Cura. Nixi is programme director at Christie’s Education and serves as an Honorary Research Fellow at the University of Glasgow.
