In this week’s episode of the ArtTactic Podcast, George Bailey, co-founder of The Auction Room, joins us to talk about his new online auction site. First, George discusses the company’s focus on the lower end of the art market, property just below the value threshold that a traditional auction house possesses. Also, he explains why The Auction Room will host Middle Eastern contemporary art sales and what opportunities exist in this emerging art market. Then, George elaborates on the advantages a small, online auction house has over larger, traditional auction houses and speculates on the future of the online art marketplace.
