In Ep35 of Thinking of Art, I caught up with Leon Benrimon from Heritage Auctions about their upcoming contemporary auction. We touched on how the art market has evolved since Covid-19 (providing more transparency in pricing, better access to condition reports, & new systems to create more fluidity for transactions).
We addressed how the art world has fallen short to support artists of color but how recent events have created a positive shift for galleries to provide even more supporting for artists of color.
Benrimon also spoke in depth about the following artists: Sam Gilliam, Wayne Thiebaud, Keith Haring, Helen Frankenthaler, Louise Nevelson, and Roy Lichtenstein. I enjoyed hearing his thoughts on the likelihood that there will be fewer art fairs in the next year ahead and how this will create new opportunities for collectors.
It was helpful to hear an example of how the fee structure works when bidding on an object. If you have interest in bidding at a future auction, message me directly so I can assist you.
