istorian and boasts new expansive facilities for the management and analysis of artists’ estates. In support of the new endeavor,
on January 20, 2016, VAN HAM will host
the symposium “Management of Artists’ Estates.” The demand for and necessity of such events is clear: VAN HAM hosted six in 2015 alone. Given the lack of symposia on the topic, there has been little serious discus- sion of the nancial and legal challenges, as well as the continued marketing needed for successful estate management. Our event
is designed to address precisely those con- cerns. Taken together with our expansion in the Contemporary Art category, VAN HAM’s efforts in developing its estate manage- ment services con rm our commitment to present-day developments and established services.
