ACI Art Forum

The 10th edition of Cosmoscow International Contemporary Art Fair, together with the Agency for Creative Industries of the City of Moscow, presents the Business Program, which will be held during the days of the fair in Gostiny Dvor on September 14—17.

This year, the speakers of the program will discuss the professional standards and trends that have developed in the art industry in recent years: how art has become closer to business, why large companies support cultural institutions, and why we see the work of contemporary artists in public spaces more and more often.
