As part of the Art360 project, DACS Foundation and Goldsmiths, University of London are hosting a conference exploring the long-term impact of donations from artists, estates, galleries and collectors in supporting the visual arts in the UK.
The event brings together experts from the visual arts sector, including representatives from museums and galleries, as well as artists, funding bodies and donors. We have invited leading arts professionals who have brokered new relationships, and the artists and collectors whose generosity continues to benefit national audiences, to take part in this conversation; and to share with us lessons learnt around legacy expectations.
The conference will be chaired by Richard Noble, Head of the Department of Art, Goldsmiths. Speakers include Michael Craig-Martin, artist; Ann Gallagher, Director of Collection, British Art, Tate; James Green, Director, Newlyn Art Gallery; Mary Moore, co-founder of the Henry Moore Foundation; Kirstie Skinner, Director, Outset Scotland; Gilane Tawadros, Chief Executive, DACS; Christine Vincent, Project Director, The Aspen Institute; Loretta Würtenberger, Director, The Institute for Artists’ Estates and more.
