April 8th, NYC: Art + Business: Navigating the New Landscape, Panel Discussion

Parsons The New School for Design
Panel Discussion: Art + Business: Navigating the New Landscape
Tuesday, April 8, 2014, doors at 6:00 pm
Free and open to the public.  Registration encouraged.

Michelle Bogre, Associate Professor of Photography at Parsons, lawyer, documentary photographer and author, moderates a panel discussion presented by the Parsons Institute for Intellectual Property.

Panelists:
Mona Kuhn, contemporary artist
Fabrice Nadjari, entrepreneur and photographer
Andrea Blanch, editor-in-chief of Musee Magazine
Michael Foley, gallery owner, Foley Gallery
Anna Walker Skillman, gallery director and curator, Jackson Fine Art

Sustaining a robust photograph practice today requires not just the obvious level of creativity, but a good hint of marketing, branding and social media management, a constant attention to new storytelling tools as well as a working knowledge of the gallery culture, dealer-artist relationships, copyright and contract law. What is the new landscape of photography? How do you sustain a vibrant practice? How can platforms such as Instagram or Facebook enhance a creative practice and its visibility? And in this ever-changing landscape, how have the relationships of the traditional players of the art world evolved?

To tackle these topics the Parsons Institute for Intellectual property (PiiP), brings together a panel of experienced professionals with diverse backgrounds in art and photography, the gallery world, modern law, social media and marketing who will discuss the things you need to know about how to navigate the various intersections of art, business and law.
