Location: Dialogs LA Booth BB1

At its best, curation for projects deepens the worlds of all involved. We look forward to your participation in this lively discussion about how we can bring greater meaning and inspiration to the work we do. Hear perspectives of gallerists and designers alike on how to bring those two worlds together.

Ideally, clients are being offered a full range of art; designers are given the support they need; and galleries are given the opportunity to offer their expertise and showcase the artists they have so lovingly brought together. Meet and Greet with Panelists at conclusion.
FRIDAY, JANUARY 25TH
SHOW DAY TWO
1:00PM – Powering Provenance with Bitcoin
Speaker: Howard Sheerin, founder of ArtChain.info and BitcoinGallery.com
Location: Dialogs LA Booth BB1

Dialog: A presentation explaining why Bitcoin is a powerful Monolith and not merely a speculative bubble. Like all other significant innovations, Bitcoin has been misused for evil intent, with Silk Road being the most notorious example. Even at “The Dawn of Man” the very first innovation… the Femur Bone… was used for evil intent. That Bitcoin has been misused for evil demonstrably proves there is power in Bitcoin. The absence of evil would be a more concerning indication that Bitcoin is a speculative bubble, much like the Beanie Baby bubble (there was no evil in Beanie Babies).

Presented by: Michael Goedhuis
Speakers: Michael Goedhuis
Location: Booth 313/412

3:30PM – The Ubiquity of Politics in Korean Ink
Presented by: LACMA
Speaker: Virginia Moon, PhD, Assistant Curator of Korean Art
Location: Dialogs LA Booth BB1

Dialog: The contemporary cannot be understood without knowledge of the past. In this talk, Dr. Virginia Moon, Assistant Curator of Korean Art at LACMA, talks about how mixed feelings of nationalism alongside gratitude towards the outside world at the beginning of the 20th century marked forever a duality/struggle with identity and expression that pervaded Korean society and its arts, including ink works. Ink works have been a cultural mainstay since the dominance of China centuries ago, but carried through to Korea’s cultural discovery of itself in the 19th century and continued to serve as an artistic “given” through the decades. Even today, the struggle is still there, as contemporary artists, including Chuni Park, featured at Baik Art in this fair, grapple with how to sustain this art form into the future.
