Public talk: Agnes Berecz - "The New York Art World"

Anna Nova gallery and CEC ArtsLink is glad to announce a public-talk of a New York based art historian and professor Agnes Berecz who will tell about the contemporary art-scene in New York. Agnes is invited to shortly participate in the Back Apartment Residency Program in St. Petersburg.

The world of contemporary art in New York is an intricate network of individuals and institutions that includes artists, dealers, critics, advisors and collectors as well as galleries, museums, art fairs and auction houses. An aggregate of multiple fields and functions which interact and overlap in a complex fashion, it is a place for intellectual exchange and political conversation, but it is also a business and an industry governed by market forces. How do these often contradictory functions exist together? And who are the major players and the leading discourses in the New York art world today? The lecture will provide a structural overview of the people and places that shape the city’s contemporary art scene.

Ágnes Berecz (PhD, Université Paris I, Panthéon-Sorbonne) is an art historian and an associate professor at Christie’s Education New York. She also teaches at Pratt Institute and lectures at the Museum of Modern Art. Her writings have appeared in Art Journal, Art in America, Artmargins, and the Yale University Art Gallery Bulletin, and in numerous European and U.S. exhibition catalogues.

The talk takes place at the Anna Nova Gallery May 10 at 7 pm.
