One of the most common questions we are asked at Christie’s Education is, “how can I learn about emerging artists?” This course is our answer to that question. We’ve asked professionals from all areas of the art world to share with participants those emerging artists working today that have captured their attention. An art dealer, an art historian, an auction specialist and others will each present 5 emerging artists of their choice, providing the context for each artist’s work and the artist’s career trajectory. Join us for an exciting program that will introduce you to a variety of art that defines our contemporary culture.
