Mr. Winkleman will give a lecture based on extensive research for an upcoming book, “Selling Contemporary Art: How to Navigate the Evolving Market” (working title), in which he explores how to strategize through a range of shifts in the contemporary art market. Noteworthy factors include: the rise of the “Mega-Gallery”, the increasing importance of art fairs, online sales, and the growing globalization of the art market.
Edward Winkleman is co-owner of Winkleman Gallery in New York. Winkleman began his art career with a series of guerrilla-style exhibitions called “hit & run” that took place in empty warehouses in New York and London. In 2001 he co-founded Plus Ultra Gallery in the Williamsburg district of Brooklyn with artist Joshua Stern. Moving into Chelsea in 2006, the space became Winkleman Gallery to reflect a change in ownership. Murat Orozobekov became co-owner of the gallery in 2007. Orozobekov and Winkleman co-founded the Moving Image art fair in March 2011. Focused on video and moving-image based sculptures and installation, Moving Image takes place in New York and London each year. Winkleman is the author of an eponymous blog that focuses on art (in particular, demystifying the gallery system) and politics. He has also been a contributing editor to Art World Salon and is the author of the book How to Start and Run a Commercial Art Gallery and is currently writing a follow-up book tentatively titled Selling Contemporary Art: How to Navigate the Evolving Market.
