As the world waits for museums and art institutions to reopen, we need to examine the profound impact of an unprecedented moment in time, as a global pause for art audiences has provoked alternative channels in both art production and audience engagement.
How have artists reacted to the pandemic and lockdown? With the increase in digital platforms how will this affect artistic practice? Will this period have an enduring impact or will the art world return to its previous incarnation? What does the future hold for the artistic and creative sectors?
The Collectors Forum is part of Abu Dhabi Art’s Summer Programme. The Summer Programme is an online platform to connect to the art community. The programme includes an online Summer Catalogue by Abu Dhabi Art’s participating galleries and a Collectors Forum with a series of talks organised by Roxane Zand.
