In March 2017, I held a talk within the frame of the 11th Global Art Forum at Art Dubai that was written in response to the forum’s theme, ‘Trading Places,’ which considered the history of trade and its cultural impacts from the context in which the forum was being held: an art fair. A work in progress, this is a reworked, extended and at times corrected version of that talk: a condensed introduction to my ongoing study of the global network of art fairs and biennials as a microcosm of the art world industrial complex through which the processes of globalization and its affects might be observed.
