Christie’s Education will be holding its 2018 conference "Celebrating Female Agency in the Arts" on June 26–27, 2018 in New York. It celebrates the significant roles women have played and continue to play in the arts and their markets. Sixteen sessions over two days explore women’s diverse contributions to the arts from a transnational and transhistorical perspective, reflecting global and historical diversity. Not advocating for a separate nor alternative history of art and its markets, the conference looks at the central role played by women in the creation, development, support and preservation of the arts and how their contribution has changed over time.

Sessions focus on women as artists, patrons and collectors of art and architecture, dealers and brokers, art historians and art critics as well as curators and preservers of culture. Including the presence of women in historical aristocratic patronage, the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, and the contemporary art world in both emerging and established centres, the sessions will investigate a diverse range of topics.

Christie’s Education is pleased to confirm Sara Kay as a keynote speaker. Prior to founding Sara Kay Gallery in 2017, she was Director of White Cube Gallery in London. Sara is the Founder and Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Professional Organization of Women in the Arts, which champions professionalism and the advancement of women in the business of fine art.
