Vastari Webinars host important industry conversations: challenging assumptions, asking difficult questions and finding solutions to complex problems. Bringing together an unrivalled network of contributors from both within and outside the arts and culture space, these events are essential for anyone actively participating in, or seeking a foothold within, this ecosystem. The full event recordings are available exclusively on our portal.
This webinar explores the impacts of the pandemic on couriers in the exhibitions industry. Prior to 2020, many loans and exhibition tours required couriers to travel with the objects in order to ensure that the transport and installation followed the lender’s standards. Due to the issues that arose for travelling during the pandemic including quarantine requirements and cancelled flights, many installations were conducted over video and artworks travelled with what some have come to call “virtual couriers”.
We will be exploring this trend for collecting NFTs that grew in 2020, and the potential for these digital artworks to be displayed in museums in the coming years.
Royal Academy Trustee Lady Alison Myners described a need to connect with younger generations. By setting up a younger, shadow board in 2015 that met regularly with the senior team, Gucci doubled their turnover in just 4 years.
The data from Vastari’s Reports on Collecting indicates that collectors under 50 are much more investment-driven than their over 50 year old counterparts. Those who currently lend to museums are overwhelmingly in the over 50 category. While young investment-driven collectors stand out as being the most willing to donate and lend to museums, these collectors also frequently describe museums as unapproachable.
In this webinar the panellists discuss the ways in which the art market can begin to create long term sustainable solutions. Crown Fine Art and Ki Culture share information about the ways they are leading sustainable change in the cultural industry. Then, two artists from different parts of the world explain the ways they have been using their practices to raise awareness of the climate crisis.
“ As a Museum Trustee, I have found Vastari's seminars invaluable in terms of learning best practice from experts on the new technologies and partnership models museums must now embrace to engage with their communities.
“ There is no going back to the old way of doing things and Vastari's seminars shine a light on a future full of opportunities.
