PAIAM Members are invite to attend the 7th Annual Conference which will take place at Sotheby's, London. 


The conference will open with a short AGM before continuing with two sessions which have been planned to inform and to initiate thoughtful discussion:

Session 1: Exploring the Future of Artificial Intelligence in the Art Market
Anders Petterson of ArtTactic will chair a panel discussion which will seek to explore the future of AI and its potential impact on the Art Market. He will be joined by Stephen Hennigan from the joint office of DCMS and BEIS for Artificial Intelligence; Jonathan Kewley, Partner and Co-Head of Clifford Chance Tech Group, specialist in fintech, blockchain and artificial intelligence regulation and Professor Mick Grierson, University of the Arts. Together they will offer a brief introduction to AI and investigate how it may evolve as an artistic practice and what the legal and regulatory implications of this might be.

Session 2: Keeping it Real: A Conversation with Filmmaker Jeff Oppenheim and a sneak peak at the new documentary Real Fake: The Art, Life and Crimes of Elmyr de Hory
Elmyr de Hory was one of the most notorious forgers, alleged to have painted thousands of “fakes.” Having eluded prosecution from Interpol, Scotland Yard and other authorities, Elmyr is the subject of a new invesitgation in a documentary by veteran filmmaker Jeff Oppenheim. Weaving excerpts from his film, featuring interviews with a cadre of international art experts, and offering a rare glimpse of the never before published legal papers of one of Elmyr's greatest swindles, Jeff leads a discussion regarding key issues of provenance, connoisseurship and forensics within the world of fakes, forgeries and the art world at large.

The conference will finish at approximately 6.30pm with drinks served in the Sotheby’s galleries.

Please note this event is for PAIAM members only who should respond to their invitation to confirm their attendance.
