Art is no stranger to controversy. An artist’s ability to make works that move us can also fire up intense criticism and anger. Controversy also extends to all players in the ecosystem of the art world, including museum and gallery professionals, collectors, dealers, auction houses and even critics. What causes controversy today and how is it being dealt with? In the form of a conversation, this panel will present and discuss a selection of recent cases of controversy in contemporary art.
Presented by DHC/ART Foundation for Contemporary Art during Papier 2018.
