Christie’s Conclave

With a focus on Indian art during the period 1700 — 1850, this year’s Conclave will be an integral discursive feature of Serendipity Arts Festival. Curated by Christie’s, the conclave will include a number of prominent speakers–each with their own areas of research and ongoing work–to engage with themes around patronage and connoisseurship during the 18 – 19th Century, the varying art forms being produced during the time, the changing dynamics of political power, and the resultant increase in trade of the art forms with the advent of colonial rule.
