The New Geography of the Contemporary Art Market

April 14, 2015
Doors: 6 pm
Talk: 7-8 pm

The market for contemporary art today is global, but has it changed the dynamic of the center and the periphery? While it might seem that the dominant players from established art centers are pulling the strings, there is new evidence that the preeminence of the U.S. and Europe is beginning to wane, and multiple markets have emerged in place of one central art economy. This talk will address innovations to the art market from the periphery and how these are beginning to reshape the geography of the art world in the 21st century. John Zarobell, Assistant Professor of International Studies and Program Chair of European Studies, leads the discussion.
