The Consumption of Contemporary Art – Panel Discussion

Alaina Simone Enterprises presents : TAKE FIVE / ART100

Panel Discussion – Nationality, Ethnicity, Identity and the Consumption of Contemporary Art

I’m delighted to announce that I will be showing with ART100 New York in April and attending this event at the gallery Friday evening – please join me! This Friday’s discussion will expand on the dialog that Alaina Simone Enterprises and I started with TAKE FIVE in St. Croix in December.

RSVP’s are required but feel free to share the invitation with friends:

Art100 Consumption of Contemporary Art


Over the past several decades, the nationality, ethnicity, sexuality and identity of an artist have increasingly become considerations and markers in how their art is evaluated, appraised and qualified.

The panel will share their experiences in this regard and will probe the concept of art beyond identity in both the museum and commercial realms.

TAKE FIVE, a survey exhibition of identity, race, gender, power and the environment took place in the U.S. Virgin Islands, in December 2016. TAKE FIVE is now collaborating with ART100 New York to to discuss the role that commercial and non-profit sectors play in the consumption of art that highlights issues of nationality, ethnicity, and identity in the global art market.

Moderator: Carla Acevedo-Yates
