What better way to prepare for visiting art fairs this semester than to hear about the experience of organizing and working at them from SIA alumnae and current students? While most fairs take place over just a few days, planning these events takes place year-round. While the press covers the openings, the high profile visitors, and the headline-grabbing sales, there are many more aspects of these intensive days and evenings—whether it is vetting the objects, organizing guest speakers, moving art and installing a booth. This lunchtime event gives students a behind-the-scenes peak into what to expect from TEFAF-NY, Art Basel, The Armory Show, and many others.

This event is only open to Sotheby’s Institute students, faculty, alumni, and staff. If you are interested in applying to our MA program and would like to attend this event, please contact admissions:
