Tariffs: The Impact of Trade Wars on Art and Culture
Due to the coronavirus, please call to ensure this event is still happening before you leave home.
U.S.-China trade tension characterized 2019 with tariffs imposed by both countries on a wide range of products. In August 2019, the U.S. published a list of items worth $300 billion of Chinese imports subject to tariffs. Among these items were arts and antiques comprising lithographs, prints, drawings, paintings, engraving, and sculptures that are more than 100 years old. Many U.S. dealers and curators have expressed concern arguing that the tariffs are counterproductive and would hurt the U.S., not China. Although these tariffs may eventually be lifted as part of phase one of the U.S.-China trade deal, they have created much uncertainty in the arts world. How will this impact the art world in the U.S.? Organized on the occasion of the inaugural Asia Society Triennial, join the conversation with a group of experts to understand the future of art trade.
