PSFK Conference New York Speaker: Sara Schiller

We’re excited to have Sara Schiller, co-founder of the Wooster Collective as well as MEET at the Apartment speak at PSFK Conference New York on April 2. She will be joining Marc Schiller, co-founder of both Wooster and MEET (and her husband) in a discussion on art and commerce. They will explore the fine line between art and commerce and describe how, with consideration, the two can be respectfully blended to create new ideas.

First, who are you and what do you do?

I consider myself a change agent, always looking for opportunities to do things that have never been done before which emerge from looking at situations fearlessly. With my husband Marc, I founded Wooster Collective. We curate art events, publish books, write magazine articles and, most importantly, identify little pieces of creativity that we share each morning with the world on I also launched Meet at the Apartment, a space that re-invents how people meet by combining distinctive design with superior technology and amazing service. We are the anti-thesis of the beige conference room.

You’ll be sharing your ideas on our Art & Commerce presentation. In one paragraph, can you explain what themes and ideas you hope to touch upon during the discussion?

  • How street art transitioned from the streets to the galleries in 5 years
  • What fuels the art market – and its record prices
  • What will happen to street art as the market goes through this current decline
  • What lessons people can learn from street art and how it has transferred into commerce
  • How should brands work with artists
