|The Miami Art Dealers Association (MADA) is honored to present the second MADA Talks lecture with Mr. Todd Levin on Monday October 26th at 6pm kindly hosted by Mindy Solomon Gallery and sponsored by Mitrani Warehouse and MADA. The lecture is free and open to the public, all MADA members and Friends of MADA. We kindly ask that you RSVP as space is limited, via email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The premise for Mr. Levin’s lecture is based on his belief that “…If we only discuss Art as an asset class and divorce it entirely from why it was created in the first place, then Art and money exchange roles: money becomes ‘divine’ by being translated into Art, and Art becomes commonplace by being translated into money…”. He will delve into the current conditions of the international market where the price and value of works fluctuate heavily and seem disconnected from the body of work itself.
