Virtual | Where Are We Now? Revisiting the State of Fine Art Shipping in a Post-Pandemic World

March 17, 2021 @ 12:00 pm

12pm ET | 11am CT | 9am PT

Since the start of the pandemic, fine art shippers, registrars, and collections managers have had to find inventive solutions to moving artwork during a global lockdown. Back in July 2020, when the art world was still adapting to new pandemic-related regulations, ArtTable hosted a virtual conversation on this topic, where we discussed evolving logistical measures and responsibilities taken on by arts institutions and spaces within and outside of the US. As we approach the one year mark of the pandemic in the US, we revisit this conversation with new insights and discuss other factors that continue to affect the shipping sector of the art market, like new regulations between the US and the UK, continued gallery closures and staff reductions, and shifting exhibition and fair schedules.

What have shipping agents and registrars learned in the past year about adapting their tried and tested methods? How are museums, art galleries, or private collections faring amid ever-changing regulations? And what can we expect in the coming months? Join us for what is sure to be a fascinating discussion with Jacqueline Cabrera (Cabrera + Art + Management), Tina Sullivan (Masterpiece International), and Anna Marris (Constantine International).
