Fair’s Fair: Why do we love to hate art fairs?

Chaired by David Barrett at the ICA, London

Love them or loathe them Art Fairs are here to stay. Part of the art market, art fairs don’t just benefit dealers and collectors but artists too, so why do so many art critics despise them? Isn’t it time to move the debate along from the default position of ‘museum shows good: art fairs bad?’

Panel: Pryle Berhman, Lisa Le Feuvre, Peter Suchin

Art, Music, Performance

Chaired by Sally O’Reilly at Collective Gallery, Edinburgh

David Ryan and Kirsten Norrie are both artists and both musicians, Sally O’Reilly is a critic and curator of performance events and all three write for Art Monthly. They discussed the crossovers between music, performance and other art forms and tried to address some of problems of definition that arise as a result. They tackled the common questions about interdisciplinarity such as how do you critique or react to a work which combines more than one art form? How context affects the work – when music is played within an art context and vice versa? What difference can the audience make if the work is ‘participatory’, ‘interactive’, or ‘transactive’?

Institutionalisation for All

Chaired by Patricia Bickers at Cornerhouse, Manchester

Worlds within Worlds: The Institutions of Art

‘If institutionalisation once lurked ominously in the distance for the avant-garde radical, today it is instantaneous, ubiquitous and unexceptional.’ – Dave Beech

Are today’s artists powerless to resist institutionalisation?

The Art Monthly panel will attempt to define the concepts of ‘institutionalisation’ in art and ‘the institutions of art’ and debate the changing practice of institutional critique, including the phenomenon of self-institutionalisation which, arguably, has superseded it.
