Art, Death & Legacy: Forsters and Artistate host panel discussion at the London Art Fair

Catherine Hill, who heads Forsters' Art Group, will be one of three keynote speakers in 'Art, Death & Legacy: Managing artists' estates in the 21st century' at the London Art Fair.

"Running an artist's estate is a complex business. The logistics of storage, archiving and insurance, the administration of loans, consignments and other contractual issues, copyright and Artist Resale Rights, curatorial decision-making and reputation management - the range of skills and knowledge required is very broad. This all plays out against the backdrop of providing for the artist's surviving family whilst at the same time ensuring that the right body of work remains in the public eye for years to come. Addressing all these issues needs specialist help at different points along the way. Knowing who to speak to and when is key".

In this panel discussion, Catherine Hill, a co-founder of Artistate, will be joined by guest speakers Sam Mundy (British painter) and Matthew Travers (Director of Piano Nobile Gallery) to draw on their experiences of working with and running artist estates and explore what measures artists can take to prepare their own legacy.

The session, moderated by Artistate's Jessica Carlisle, will take place on Thursday 21 April 2022 at 1pm and you can book a ticket here.

Forsters' Art Group are also delighted to be one of the sponsors of the fair. If you are attending the fair and would like to connect with a member of our team, please contact [email protected].
