Talking Galleries is an international symposium 
for gallerists designed specifically to target 
those issues that concern and impact the gallery 
practice. The forum focuses on how gallerists 
have to adapt to new realities shaped by the 
economic downturn, the rapidly changing 
technology and the shifting values of the 
traditional marketplace.  

Barcelona will display an open platform where 
professionals share experiences, build new 
effective knowledge and search together for 
answers. A meeting of colleagues that goes above 
and beyond the commercial side of the art 
business and highlights central issues in the 
world of galleries, producing meaningful contents 
for a global community of art professionals in 
the frame of a non-selling environment. 

Georgina Adam, Financial Times art specialist, 
will conduct the sessions that include, amongst 
others, renowed Ph.d. cultural economist Clare 
McAndrew, who will outline tomorrow's art market; 
The Armory Show director Noah Horowitz with a 
diagnosis on the current conditions of the 
globalised art context; gallerist Claes 
Nordenhake discussing art fairs vs. non-fair 
models; collector Alain Servais with his thesis 
on the art ecosystem; and gallerists Jocelyn 
Wolff's experience on working outside the big 
structures. See the rest of our outstanding 
speakers and the full programme
