After the success of the inaugural symposium in 2022, Talking Galleries celebrated its second edition in New York on Monday, April 8th and Tuesday, April 9th, 2024. The event took place at The Spiral by Tishman Speyer, in renewed collaboration with the advisory firm Schwartzman& and under the direction of Loring Randolph.

With an impressive lineup of nearly 40 leaders from the international art scene, Talking Galleries New York 2024 provided a comprehensive analysis of the issues facing the art world today, extending our exploration beyond art market and gallery practices.

This year, the program discussions covered the evolving landscape of art institutions and museums, delved into the contemporary relevance of art criticism, analyzed market trends, addressed the importance of galleries’ identity in a changing world, acknowledged new models for philanthropy, and navigated the impact of AI in the arts, among other key topics shaping the future of the art world.

We would like to thank especially our esteemed speakers for this brilliant new edition of Talking Galleries in New York, our host The Spiral, and above all our valued attendees for joining us and for your insightful participation.
