Go, Nasher. A lot of international art-world insiders are in DFW this weekend for what feels like an endless art-heavy week, and the museum has thrown together a last-minute panel discussion well worth the trouble. This particular face-off stars the very bad-boy collector Stefan Simchowitz, author Sarah Thornton (who’s art-world exposés are best sellers), art advisor Amy Cappellazzo, and curator Paul Schimmel, who ended his long tenure at LA MOCA by jumping into the commercial art world and joining forces with the powerhouse Hauser & Wirth. (Wait. Whose side is he on, anyway?) Writes the Nasher: “In a rapidly changing market, who defines the value of art? …a panel of major art world players with divergent perspectives on the buying and selling of art will discuss the shifting hierarchies and new structures that are changing the way culture is thought about and marketed.”

This is part of Nasher’s 360 Speaker Series, and this panel is called, aptly, Agents, Advisors, Devils and Apostates: The New Art World. It takes place this Saturday, April 16, at 2 p.m. It’s free with admission and free for members. For more info, go here.
