BEYOND FACTS & FIGURES: A Survey and Exploration of Art Market Dynamics in Malaysia Today

After a short break of two weeks, we organised the second roundtable for Volume 3 : Infrastructures. The roundtable on the Malaysian art market was co-organised with MAPKL (Malaysian Art Platform) in Publika during the MAP Arts Festival 2013.

The Beyond Facts & Figures roundtable invited stakeholders to discuss their roles, practices, strategies and their impact on the art market, discuss and share knowledge and practices about the market; and to understand the mechanisms and infrastructure of the art market today, and how these have developed. Materials from the roundtable will be edited to form part of Narratives in Malaysian Art Volume 3: Infrastructures, while the full recordings and transcripts will be kept by MAP for their archive and further use.

We would like to thank the moderators, the panelists and the guests who took the Saturday afternoon to join us in this roundtable.
