The CIEF, Center for the study and research of photography, in Caracas, Venezuela, held a seminar on March 15th, focussed on strategies for artists who wish to better understand the international art market. This initiative put forward by Vilena Figueira, researcher and photography lecturer at CIEF, was prompted by a desire to share insights and experience acquired by Sofia Vollmer de Maduro, during her 20 years as Curator of the Alberto Vollmer Foundation collection, and her activities as member of cultural committees in Europe and the United States.
The event was moderated by Prof. José Ramírez. Director of CIEF. A select audience made up of artists, photojournalists, curators and teachers of CIEF attended.
