It is always important to have an understanding of the structure of
the environment in which one works. Few, if any, conservators are
unaffected by the international art market, a market that is complex
and now performs faster than ever before. This presentation examines
the different building blocks of that market. It will look at their
roles, how they interact and relate to each other; the roles of
public and commercial galleries, auction house, curator and critic.
There will be an analysis of the legal and fiscal structures such as
import vat and droit de suite and in addition this presentation will
highlight certain flaws within the system and encourage a discussion
on the role conservation plays within the international art market.
