Jeffrey Boloten on The State of the Global Art Market 2011

Download: Audio

Speaker(s): Jeffrey Boloten

Recorded on 23 February 2011 in Wolfson Theatre, New Academic Building.

As part of HRL Contemporary's collaboration with the LSE, we are delighted to present our first lecture examining the relationship between art and commerce. Jeffrey Boloten, Managing Director of ArtInsight will be talking on the current state of the global art market. An expert in this area, Boloten will use recent research and data to analyse the international art system and its functions from a macro perspective. The slippery subjects of how value is ascertained in the art world and the definition of its meaning will be discussed. Boloten will relate these themes to the recent economic crisis and its effect on global art markets. This will incorporate both established art scenes as well as news and analysis of emerging international markets.
