ICRA celebrates fourth annual conference success
Over 150 attendees joined ICRA for its fourth annual conference ‘Legacy: The Artist’s View’ on 1 December, 2022. The day-long event marked a successful return to live events since Covid and a first ever hybrid session, enabling local and international attendees alike to listen and participate in the meaningful discussions with each other and with speakers.
Attendees began to arrive at the stunning Lavery Studio at Cromwell Place from 9.30am, an apposite venue to hold discussions on artistic legacy. Discussions from artists’ children and grandchildren, and world-class international artists such as Marina Abramović, Rachel Whiteread, Michael Craig-Martin, and Edmund de Waal, revealed unique experiences of how to build and maintain an artist’s legacy. Such remarkable conversations were also interspersed with networking sessions, allowing members to reflect on their own thoughts and experiences of artistic legacy.
The day has been heralded a great success by conference-goers and speakers alike. Feedback from attendees included these statements:
…Thank you so much for the most informative, moving and enjoyable conference... So much food for thought!
…What a phenomenal conference! Well worth the 4:45am alarm to wake up!
Due to the international attendance list, ICRA recorded all the presentations and will soon make these recordings available to those who registered for the event.
It was wonderful to have ICRA members back together again, as well as being able to facilitate international guests with the hybrid model, one that the ICRA Board is keen to continue.
ICRA would like to thank its sponsors for making this event possible: Christie’s, Constantine Cannon, Navigating.art, Phillips Fiduciary Services and Sotheby’s. Their continued support of ICRA’s events has provided ICRA with the ability to grow its membership and stage exceptional events and conferences.
