Savona, in an email, stated, “The panel is about the relationship between dealers, museums, artists, and dealers. There is a fluid relationship between these parties. They feed into each other. Dealers are also introducing lesser-known artists to museums and their new works. Influential artists are using their star power to recommend artists to galleries. This helps the public become more acquainted with different traditions, techniques, and stories.”
She continued: “Numbers overall for museum acquisitions need improving but it’s moving in the right direction. I have the findings of the recent museum survey. Artists looking to make a splash, still need representation but also collectors. People of color need to buy art and build demand. They can start with prints, works on paper, ceramics, and small sculptures. Participation is key.”
