A conversation between art advisor Wendy Cromwell, creative business strategist and collectors Victoria Rogers, and Susan Hort, moderated by executive editor Julia Halperin.
It’s not an overstatement to say that New York City is the engine that powers the global art market. The inaugural New York Art Market Report—commissioned by organizers of the Independent art fair and Crozier Fine Arts and compiled by Arts Economics founder Clare McAndrew—determined that the Big Apple accounts for up to a whopping 90 percent of the total value of art transactions in the US. But who are the people behind these transactions, and how has living in the metropolis informed their approach? In other words, what defines and motivates a “New York collector”? In this latest edition of Artnet Talks, three top collectors and an art advisor—all committed New Yorkers—take us behind the scenes of their experiences in the city, and tell us why they’re so sure it’s poised to bounce back from lockdown.
An audience Q&A session will follow the chat. (Please note the time zone for the start time.)
