This new series of short, thought-provoking and sometimes controversial books will debate key issues of current relevance to art-world professionals internationally working in both the private and public sectors. The series will give wider visibility to some critical areas of professional art-world practice, considering: what are the disruptors challenging the status quo, and how is the art world likely to be transformed over the next decades as a result? The books are aimed at current arts professionals and students, while also being accessible to a non-specialist audience as well as specialists and professionals working in related fields.
Key themes will include: the global art world; art and technology; art, consumerism and entertainment; public art and private money; the changing role of the art creative; the rise of China; gender and diversity in the art world; and curating in a digital age.
