Fernando Silva Pinto, Washington Correspondent for TV Globo, moderates this panel discussion with collector Dani Levinas, curator Joanna Marsh (Smithsonian American Art Museum), and gallerist Amy Raehse (Goya Contemporary). The participants will discuss their experiences with art fairs, tips for negotiating them, and the role they play in building a contemporary collection.
Organized by Washington Project for the Arts in partnership with UBS Financial Services, Inc., this forum is part of a series of stimulating conversations on current art concepts and trends, which give artists, curators, and collectors an opportunity to gain insight on new directions in contemporary art.
