'For Love and Money’: The Art Business for Profit and Not
Presented by Sotheby's Institute of Art and Claremont Graduate University

An Open House Hosted by Pitzer College Art Galleries
Broad Performance Space, The Broad Center
Pitzer College | 4.15-6.00pm

Unlike most industries, the art business is dominated by for-profit firms, such as galleries and auction houses, and nonprofit organizations, such as museums. Whereas once the divisions between the two might have seemed clear, today the boundaries are blurring, with museums increasingly dependent upon the for-profit activities of galleries and collectors while those same galleries and collectors are reliant upon the not-for-profit missions of museums and other civic organizations. Come hear Laura Zucker, Executive Director of the LA County Arts Commission and Director of CGU’s Arts Management Program, and Jonathan T. D. Neil, Director of CGU and Sotheby’s Institute of Art’s joint Art Business Program, in conversation on the fast-paced changes that are afoot in the art world where that once venerable distinction—doing it for ‘love or money’—is beginning to disappear.

Moderator: David Pagel, Art Critic for the Los Angeles Times and Professor Art at Claremont Graduate University

Hosted by Sotheby's Institute of Art Alumni

GUSFORD | los angeles | 6.00-8.00pm

In every city, art scenes grow, shift and shrink in large part due to the galleries that present, promote and sell the art. With art fairs expanding into new cities and markets, and with performance art and social practices ascendant, where does this leave the contemporary art gallery today? Join us for our first “State of the Art” roundtable discussion as we explore the gallery scene of Los Angeles.
