The Responsible Art Market (RAM) Initiative organized its annual conference of the Responsible Art Market (RAM) Initiative on Friday, 4 March 2022.
Constantly evolving to address new challenges and the ever changing world we live, this 6th annual RAM conference, to be held in hybrid format (in person and online), will focus on the Art Market in Action !
On this occasion RAM was delighted to welcome collector Sylvain Levy, for a fascinating keynote speech on Collecting art in the age of the metaverse.
From the perspective of the collector we turned to art market professionals in presenting RAM’s latest publication, a “Toolkit for Art Market Professionals”. Drafted by a working group of professionals from across the art market, the Toolkit aims to provide practical guidance to gallerists, dealers, art advisors and auction houses on handling the challeng- es which can arise when acting as intermediaries in the sale and purchase of works of art.
Through interactive dialogue and case studies, a panel of art market professionals brought the Toolkit to life, sharing their experiences and practical tips for addressing difficult situations regarding liability, remuneration and conflicts of interest when they arise.
Finally, following COP26 and growing public awareness and demands for businesses to address environmental and sustainability issues, the second part of the conference asked the question “What does sustainability mean for art businesses ?”. A panel of professionals who have embarked on the journey to reduce their carbon footprints, shared their collective experiences, practical tips and lessons learned so far.
