About

This discussion will investigate the philosophical notion of intrinsic value as opposed to an economic notion of material value. In Keith Coventry's exhibition, these two apparently conflicting positions co-exist. The panel will consider how these complex and interdependent notions of value impact on our reading and understanding of the role of art in contemporary society. Organised in association with AICA Colin Gleadell is the saleroom correspondent for Art Monthly and the Daily Telegraph. He has written for most art magazines that cover the market, and has been an art market consultant to Channel 4 news and the BBC. Sacha Craddock is a Critic and Curator and was responsible for curating Bloomberg Space until 2011. She is currently Director of Programme at Max Wigram Gallery and Chair of New Contemporaries. Nick Zangwill is Professor of Philosophy at Durham University. He is the author of The Metaphysics of Beauty (Cornell 2001) and Aesthetic Creation (Oxford 2007) and he is the co-editor of Scruton's Aesthetics (Palgrave 2011). He is also the author of many papers on moral philosophy and the philosophy of mind.
