Vallance presented a panel discussion in the fair auditorium. He employed five psychic mediums to channel the spirits of famous artists, such as Leonardo da Vinci, Jackson Pollock, Frida Kahlo, Marcel Duchamp and Vincent van Gogh. These artists were asked a number of questions. A moderator, Brian Dillon, posed questions querying the role of art in the after-world, and the dead artists’ opinions on the art market in the living world. The panel wasl open to audience questions at the end of the discussion.
Sorry, there was a problem locating that media.
