RAM’s Fifth Annual Conference
Innovation and Change in a responsible Art Market

29 January 2021


We are delighted to invite you
to the upcoming annual conference
of the Responsible Art Market (RAM) Initiative 
on Friday, 29 January 2021, 1pm – 5pm CET


For our fifth annual conference, which will be an online event, we will look at the “new normal” resulting from the impact of the global Covid-19 pandemic on the art market and its practices. In the past year, the way the art market interacts, communicates and transacts has changed indefinitely, bringing with it new opportunities as well as new challenges and risks.

 With more business being done online, how can art market players exploit these new opportunities whilst managing the associated challenges and risks? Is due diligence more important than ever in a digital art world? What legal risks does this “new reality” entail? What are the new “responsible practices”?

As the global art market becomes more connected than ever, we will also have a look at trends and expectations for 2021 in some world’s main market jurisdictions. We will notably discuss the United Kingdom-European Union trading relationship, anti-money laundering developments in the United States and art market trends from China.

This year, the webinar will be followed by an optional digital networking session which will take place at the end of the event, allowing for interactive and dynamic discussions.

You may register for this conference until 27 January 2021 by clicking here. The full program is available for download here. Media and advertising inquiries can be sent to info@responsibleartmarket.org.
