In this week’s episode of the ArtTactic Podcast, Georgina Adam, editor-at-large of The Art Newspaper and columnist for the Financial Times, returns to the podcast to discuss a variety of art market topics. First, Georgina discusses auction guarantees, one of the most controversial issues within the art market at this moment.  She breaks down how the guaranteed lots performed at Christie’s and Sotheby’s and tells us how the art market in general is reacting to the inclusion of so many guarantees in last week’s contemporary sales.  Then, Georgina shares her reaction to the sixth edition of the Abu Dhabi art fair, which she attended last week. Lastly, she talks about her new book, Big Bucks: The Explosion of the Art Market in the 21st Century, which is now available for order on Amazon.com.
