Applications Open for the 2022 Art Trade Seminar

  • 14 April 2022

Join a select group of up to twelve participants for a residential three-day Art Trade Seminar.

This will take place in London, from 4 to 6 July 2022, during London Art Week. The seminar is designed for emerging curators, academics and scholars with a professional interest in the mechanisms of the art trade, and in the practices and processes of acquiring art for public collections.

The seminar will be organised around a series of visits to high-profile London-based art dealerships, auction houses and museums, with opportunities to engage in discussion with art trade and museum professionals in the context of the market for global objects: historic, modern and contemporary. There will also be a related workshop at the Paul Mellon Centre, with the participation of leading curators and members of funding bodies engaged in providing financial support for acquisitions by museums and galleries.

The Paul Mellon Centre will provide funding to cover the cost of travel, up to three nights’ accommodation and subsistence.

Closing date for applications is 6 May, find out how to apply here.
