Course Description 
Coming from a long lineage of art dealers, collectors, and art historians, Carl Kostyál is one of the most dynamic tastemakers in the art market today. He opened his first gallery in London in 2010 and operates two more spaces in Milan and Stockholm. Over his twenty-year-long career as an art dealer, he has tirelessly exhibited untested, risk-taking emerging artists such as Austin Lee or Sun Woo, both of which recently burst onto the global stage. Additionally, Kostyál has continuously championed the overlooked, neglected, and, in some cases, forgotten talents. In his presentation, Kostyál will talk about his unique journey in the art world, how to create a market for artists, how to spot talent and share his experience of working with private collectors and museums. He will discuss what skills he believes a successful art dealer needs and about his personal vision for the art market’s future.
