Emerged markets of the Middle East and Asia vs. The Regressive Western Market (11.2.2011)
  This panel discussion supposes that the Emerging markets of the silk road: South and South East Asia representing the ancient civilizations of China, Hindu, India and Persia in opposition to the established markets of the 'developed' world, that in this clash of the West VS East/Middle East: the Silk Road Art Market's successes have trumped the contemporaries of the west.

The Internal Mechanisms of China's and India 's economies have grown exponentially over the last 20 years. Both States are situated next to the developed and powerful economies of South Korea ,Taiwan, Japan and the Gulf States. Having offshore havens in Hong Kong and Singapore, these markets also benefit from its Gulf State neighbors of Abu Dhabi, Qatar, and most notably, Dubai who act as commercial conduits for Iranian art as well as that of Iraq and Pakistan .

This roundtable analyses and debates the singularities of these Emerged markets, their future sustainability and what role the western art market plays in this future, if at all. Or will the west have to adapt to the east?
