Art100 Consumption of Contemporary Art

Take Five and Art100: Panel Discussion and Exhibition

Panel Discussion at Art100 New York, Friday March 3rd, 5-7pm

This Friday Kharis Kennedy will be attending the Take Five/Art100 Panel Discussion: Nationality, Ethnicity, Identity and the Consumption of Contemporary Art. The discussion about the consumption of contemporary art will expand the dialogue that Kennedy started with Take Five in St. Croix in December 2016.

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.
