ARTZU’s Nick Betney talks at Global Art Conference in Dubai


In March 2018 ARTZU’S Nick Betney was invited to the UNFOLD ART XCHANGE as a guest speaker to lead a panel of global experts discussing all things art!

Curators, government authorities, public art agencies, real estate developers, hoteliers, spatial designers and art experts all came together with ARTZU proudly representing our corner of the globe and Nick contributing his wealth of over 20 years experience in a series of lively debates.

The event itself took place in Dubai and was held at the prestigious FIVE Palm Jumeirah Dubai Hotel which saw experts from all over the world convene to discuss the world of art through a series of panel discussions and interview sessions.

Nick discussed corporate art and was joined by other experts such as luminaries Dr. Thomas Girst of BMW (the man who’s currently responsible for BMW’s famous ‘Art Cars’) Sainnie Brink of ING bank and Dr Paul Bayliss of Barclays.

The event was a tremendous success, over the five days the UNFOLD Art XChange looked at every aspect of the global art market, exploring emerging art scenes across countries in Latin America, Africa, Eastern Europe, Caucasus and Asia. ARTZU was honoured to be recognised alongside the attending global heavyweights of the sector including Architects and design houses such as Foster + Partners, Akins and SOM (Skidmore, Owings & Merrill LLP)
