As an emerging artist, do you ever wonder how artists navigate art fairs, galleries, and selling their work? Hear the perspectives of three different art world professionals on Saturday, April 26 at the Queens Museum.

Following a screening of the New York Close Up film Kalup Linzy Makes His Way Through the Art World, Art21’s Associate Curator and New York Close Up series Co-Producer Wesley Miller will engage artist Kalup Linzy and gallerist Matthew Dipple of American Contemporary in a conversation about the business of galleries and the increasingly central role of art fairs in the art world.

The event begins at 4pm. Visit the Queens Museum website for more information.
