ADAA Collectors' Forum
The Art Show Phenomenon: How the Art Market's Hottest Trend Is Shaping the Cultural Landscape
Thursday, May 24, 2007, 6 pm to 8 pm
New York in February. Maastricht and Dubai in March. Chicago in April. Basel in June. Paris and London in October. Miami Beach in December. What's an art collector to do? With the overwhelming number of art fairs today, serious collectors have found themselves regularly boarding airplanes to see the latest art. In this Collectors' Forum, four ADAA dealers will offer collectors an inside look at the rapidly growing world of fine art fairs. Do dealers really save their best work for the fairs? How are art fairs affecting the art market?
While providing an overview of the current scene, the role of art fairs in the current cultural landscape will be explored. What art fairs are the most important? Which established fairs are crucial and which emerging fairs are worth a trip? And why is the art market becoming so event-driven?
Next year, ADAA's own art fairThe Art Show at the Park Avenue Armory in New York Citywill celebrate a milestone with The Art Show's 20th anniversary edition. Back in 1989, art fairs were a rarity. Today, with the frenzied pitch of the art market at an all time high and countless fairs around the globe, clearly some reflection is in order. Art fairs offer numerous opportunities for both collectors and dealers, yet do we need so many of them?
