'Art360: The Gift and its Legacy' brings together experts from the visual arts sector, including representatives from museums and galleries, as well as artists, funding bodies and donors. We have invited leading arts professionals who have brokered new relationships, and the artists and collectors whose generosity continues to benefit national audiences, to take part in this conversation; and to share with us lessons learnt around legacy expectations.
The conference is the first public event of the Art360 project, a key initiative of DACS Foundation, to explore best practice around capturing, curating and disseminating knowledge about the crucial importance of safeguarding the cultural heritage of British artists.
The conference will be chaired by Richard Noble, Head of the Department of Art, Goldsmiths. Speakers include Michael Craig-Martin, artist; Mary Moore, representative of Henry Moore's Estate and co-founder of the Henry Moore Foundation; Christine Vincent, Project Director, The Aspen Institute; Sarah Martin, Head of Exhibitions, Turner Contemporary; James Green, Director, Newlyn Art Gallery; Candida Gertler, Director and Trustee, Outset Contemporary Art Fund; Gilane Tawadros, Chief Executive, DACS and Mark Waugh, Head of Research and Innovation, DACS.
