This panel debates the issues of buying art on Instagram and other social media platforms. The digital realm is now established as a place to see and be informed about art. What effect is buying through this channel having on artists, dealers and collectors? Are collectors buying art unseen from artists and gallerists they do not know, and could this be leading to broader global collections? Is the digital world replacing the experience of seeing art in the physical space?
