Register today to join Jing Daily and Sotheby’s on Thursday, April 8 at 10am EST / 3pm GMT for a live webinar exploring “How Popular Culture Has Redefined Luxury in China”.
The discussion will be moderated by Enrique Menendez, Editor-in-Chief of Jing Daily, who will be joined by Contemporary artist Daniel Arsham, editor Ted Gushue, and Yuki Terase, Head of Contemporary Art, Sotheby’s Asia. Together, the panelists will explore the intersection between luxury and popular culture, looking to the unique tastes of Chinese cultural consumers and how they have established a new utopia for luxury.
In our discussion, we’ll explore:
- How does popular art carry through to what we today call popular culture?
- How has the definition of luxury changed over the years?
- What are the specificities of the Chinese luxury market? How does the industry adapt to the new paradigm?
- What is the winning marketing strategy for luxury?
- How does an auction house evolve to meet today’s demands?
