Over the past years we have observed very strong interest in art appreciation and collecting among the public. While seasoned collectors are familiar with the flow of the market and know that any error in judgment can result in huge losses, many new collectors find themselves uncertain about many things, and do not understand the art world well enough to make informed, sensible decisions. For example, those who had gone into the art market during the contemporary art hype a few years ago might have gotten their pockets burnt as contemporary art prices have dropped substantially in recent years. Some might have even purchased fake works unknowingly. How does one avoid such mistakes and what are the trends ahead?
artcommune has designed a two and a half hour talk tailored to the needs of this segment of the audience. The talk aims to introduces participants to some fundamentals that drive the art market, and introduce some do's and don’ts in the course of collecting:
1. What is the value of art? Why is art being collected by the elites? 2. Aesthetics : A quick formula to art appreciation 3. A-Zs of art collecting : What a new collector should know 4. The investment potential in art collecting.
