ARTMAZON Lagos Conference
The first-ever ARTMAZON Lagos Conference will hold on December 15, 2018, at the Radisson Blu Anchorage Hotel, Victoria Island Lagos.
ARTMAZON provides an online gallery and platform for African artists to present their works on an International Platform. The objective of the event is to initiate a forum in Lagos dedicated to contemporary art from Africa and its diaspora with a mission to represent talented African artists from Africa and its diaspora.
The conference also provides an avenue to articulate a unique value proposition, as well as identify collaborative partnership opportunities towards mutual advances and benefits within the African contemporary art industry.
Topics include “A Place for the Art”— the preservation/safe and secure storage of African art; Inventory and Marketplace Visibility; Innovation in Art Trade – ARTMAZON Art Finance Conceptualisation, Liquidity, Transparency and Valuation; Investment Opportunities – exploring the franchising model, artwork and art material sale by eCommerce.
Considering the unprecedented development of the art market over the past few years, which has resulted in the ‘financialisation’ of the art market, art is now seen not only as an object of pleasure but also as a new alternative asset class with interesting business opportunities.
The conference ARTMAZON, is a step to put art in its rightful place as a potent resource for youth empowerment, socio-cultural national development, and furthering the promotion of modern and contemporary African art on a global platform.
