Day 1, April 24: Setting the Price - Presented by Lauren Gentile, A participatory workshop where artists can sign up to have their work appraised by Contemporary Wing founder and independent appraiser, Lauren Gentile. Lauren will discuss her assessment of the proper pricing of the artworks in a public presentation, allowing attendees to get a glimpse into the factors that affect pricing from the perspective of a gallerist and appraiser who regularly works with collectors and artists.
Day 2, April 25: Protecting the Value - Moderated by Lisa Gold. A panel discussion moderated by WPA's Lisa Gold, focusing on understanding the risks that can affect the value of an artist's work, both before and after a sale. The panel will offer a diverse range of perspectives from experts in the areas of insurance, valuation, and conservation in order to help artists make informed choices about protecting their work.
