The UAL Art Business Society is organising their first annual conference, titled ‘Creative Capital: Navigating the Contemporary Art World’. A moderated panel with a talk on art investments, art innovations, and the future of the art market, it will feature Simon De Pury (auctioneer, art dealer), Philip Hoffman (founder, The Fine Art Group) and Millie Jason Foster (director, Gillian Jason Foster Gallery). The conference will be followed by an auction and a networking session. This presents itself as a networking opportunity for students to connect with industry professionals and other students across universities like LSE, UCL, Imperial and Cambridge, who share similar interests within the industry. 

Part of this event is ‘iMmo Contemporary’, a silent art auction showcasing work from emerging artists, particularly UAL students and graduates. Their artworks are red-chip art and curated with the purpose to provide the buyer a rare opportunity to invest in tomorrow's art scene while supporting young, emerging talent. This auction will be held at the LVMH Theatre at Central Saint Martins, also featuring a performance art showcase and DJs throughout the event.
