As part of our ongoing Conversations on Collecting series, this two-part miniseries will focus on the impacts that COVID-19 has had on artists, galleries, curators, studios and online entities operating within the complex ecosystem of the international art market in South Africa, Canada and beyond.
This week’s session features VivianeART, a Calgary-based contemporary commercial art gallery, alongside David Krut Projects, a Johannesburg-based alternative arts institution, to discuss the challenges encountered by each organization over the course of the past year and how they’ve persevered to overcome these obstacles. Today’s conversation will centre on stories of creativity, innovation and adaptability within Canadian and South African commercial arts institutions. Speakers include VivianeArt founder/owner Viviane Mehr, David Krut Projects’ gallery manager Amé Bell and master printmaker Jillian Ross.
Building on one of Griffin Art Project’s mandates to examine new currents in contemporary collecting practices, Conversations on Collecting is an ongoing series that considers the methodologies, thematics and narratives that shape collecting practices in Vancouver, Canada and beyond. This mini series is presented in collaboration with the Contemporary Art Society of Vancouver.
