Vault Lounge: Art, Money and Value

artists talking about making a living

6.30pm to 8.30pm 9th September, The Briggait, 141 Bridgegate, Glasgow

As part of the Vault Art Glasgow event, we are pleased to present an open panel discussion offering diverse perspectives on those tricky questions about how artists negotiate between audiences/publics, patrons/funders, markets and communities. In what different ways do contemporary artists ‘realise value’ from their work and get the resources that they need to keep working? What is at stake when we talk about buying and selling artworks? How do different people in Glasgow’s contemporary art world see their relationship with the wider cultural economy?

Chaired/introduced by Graham Jeffery (University of the West of Scotland)

With contributions from:

Peter McCaughey (Glasgow School of Art) on public art/private art
Simon Cronshaw: on new markets, new media
Amanda Dobbratz (IRONBBRATZ) on art and entrepreneurship
Katarzyna Kosmala, UWS on not-for-profit art & artistic life in ‘emerging markets’
Michelle Daniels - Market Gallery ( on what the ‘gallery’ can do in the 21st Century
