30 May 2011 | Artforum publisher Knight Landesman will be the keynote speaker at the 2011 Auckland Art Fair. He will discuss what makes a successful artist at the Viaduct Events Centre.

Landesman, who is known for his bright outfits and strong opinions says an artist’s ability to network and collaborate with gallerists is what distinguishes success in the art world.

“Success is dependent on being tuned in to the communities that make the artists rather than just the artists that makes the art,” he says.

Landesman will give his lecture at 6.30pm on Friday August 5. Tickets are NZ$45 with access to the exhibition.


Tickets can be purchased online.
