The Educated Art Buyer: Smart Collecting Practices in the Twenty-first Century
Over the past decade regulations related to art acquisition and transport across borders have become increasingly complex. Join Adriana Proser, John H. Foster Senior Curator for Traditional Asian Art; Clare McGowan, Senior Registrar and Collections Manager at Asia Society; and Sharon Flescher, Executive Director of the International Foundation for Art Research (IFAR), as they discuss steps that can be taken to become an educated art consumer in today’s world. The program will include a presentation by Dr. Flescher on new IFAR resources that help collectors research provenance and navigate the increasingly complex and abundant body of legislation and case law regarding the acquisition and ownership of artworks.
