Art is Business in Budapest launches training on corporate collections

The new Art is Business training course on the link between art and business is based around a rarely discussed topic: corporate art collections.

At the end of February 2023, the Corporate Collections training will be launched, which will introduce participants to the past, present, and future of corporate art collections, using Hungarian and international examples, covering legal, economic, communication, and HR areas. The training will be presented by experts such as journalist Judit Jankó, art historian and associate professor dr. Flóra Mészáros, art consultant Anna Bagyó, communication expert Erika Schneider, forensic expert Péter Tűzkő, art director of Várfok Gallery Krisztina Kovács, lawyer at Oppenheim Law Office dr. Áron László, Head of Collection at the National Bank of Hungary Kinga Hamvai, and art consultant and founder of GalleryTool Sándor Tóth Pál. The practical side of the training will be reinforced by the fact that some of the classes will take place in galleries of the leading art market, and that major companies who rarely talk about their collections will also show them.

The aim of the organizers is to give participants a more in-depth insight into the subject and to see the potential for building future corporate collections. To this end, interactive presentations will be given by professionals who are true practitioners in their field, and there will be the opportunity to visit the sites of several large companies and see their collections.
