The Art Market Blog – Past, Present and Future
As the art market prepares for the final round of sales that signify the end of another year I thought it a good time to reflect on the last six months and give a bit of an insight into what the next six months will bring for the Art Market Blog. Since starting the Art Market Blog in April I have been overwhelmed by the positive response and encouragement that I have received from people all over the world which really makes the effort and late nights all worth while. Recent mentions on the New York Times website, the Wall Street Journal website, the Conde Nast Portfolio website and many others, have confirmed my original belief in the need for a resource that revealed the inner workings of the art market in a way that was easy to understand and useful to people interested in investing in art
In between dealing with all the request that i get to give my thoughts and opinions on tv, radio, in magazines and newspapers and on websites, I have been working on a video which will give my views on the future of the art market and my predictions for 2008 which should be launched in the next couple of months. I have also been working on some exciting projects and reports which will change the way you view the art market and hopefully revolutionise the world of art investment so be sure to check back regularly so you don’t miss out. My addiction for art has seen my own art collection grow in size in recent months so you can expect to see some posts on my art collecting exploits in the very near future.
Over the next few months I will be guest blogging at the Absolute Arts website where I will be focusing more on writing about art as opposed to the art market so if that sounds like something you would be interested in stay tuned for for further information. Speaking of writing about art, some of you may already be aware that I write the art column for the magazine Antiques and Collectibles for Pleasure and Profit (and have done for two years) but for those that don’t you can check out the magazine’s website here: http://www.acpp.com.au
On a different note, I spend last weekend at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Sydney where I saw an absolutely amazing exhibition of work by Australian artist Julie Rrap called Body Double which according to the MCA website “explores the persona of the ‘trickster’ in Rrap’s work, the theme of the ‘body double’, and considers the ways in which the artist oversteps the margins of bodily representation”. If you are in Sydney then I highly recommend seeing the exhibition otherwise you can see the details of the exhibition and some pics here: http://www.mca.com.au/default.asp?page_id=10&content_id=2977
To finish this post I would like to say that if you would like my views on art, art investment or the art market for tv, radio, magazines, newspapers, websites etc. or if you just want to ask a question or say hi then please feel free to contact me at email@example.com
