Art Market 2021: Navigating the Return to Normality

Highlights

Join us for a complete and concise overview of the current art market and where it is placed after 12 months of upheaval. Our speakers will discuss how the market will respond as the world opens up again and the challenges that may arise.

Areas of discussion include:

  • What did the art market learn from the lockdown? How is 2021 looking?
  • Brexit - how has it affected the European art market? Practical tips for advisers in navigating the new landscape.
  • Sellers with fiduciary obligations: how has the calculus changed about holding versus selling (in terms of achieving fiduciary objective of maximizing value)?

....and many more
