This year’s program features 46 speakers across 12 panels, bringing together leading artists, gallerists, collectors, curators, museum directors, and critics. They will discuss diverse issues from the changing roles and responsibilities of collectors in the NFT art market to the challenges facing museums when addressing climate change, as well as offer a perspective on decolonial and ecological life in collaboration with the 12th Berlin Biennale. Conversations is curated by Emily Butler, Conversations Curator, Art Basel and guest curator at Whitechapel Gallery.
