In this week’s edition of the ArtTactic Podcast, Charlotte Burns, US News, Market and Business Editor at The Art Newspaper, joins us to recap the May New York Post-War & Contemporary auctions. First, Charlotte shares her and others reactions to the record-setting week of auctions. Then, she discusses the story she broke regarding a Chinese businesswoman who purchased over $28 million of post-war art during the week and tells us if the week was a turning of the corner for Chinese consumption of contemporary art. Also, Charlotte touches on the plethora of guarantees at auction this season as well as the strong presence of young, born post-1980 artists and why buying works by these artists has become similar to buying tech stocks early.
