Panel Discussion 

Nationality, Ethnicity, Identity and 

the 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.
