In this end of the year episode of the ArtTactic Podcast, Katya Kazakina, art market reporter for Bloomberg News, reflects on the major art market events of 2016. First, Katya takes the art market’s contraction (at the auction level in particular) as the major headline of 2016. Next, she identifies Agnes Martin, Yayoi Kusama, Kerry James Marshall, and Harold Ancart as artists who had the best year. Katya also details Instagram’s increasing influence over the past year in terms of how artists are discovered and artworks are sold. Lastly, Katya shares with us how market participants are feeling about the state of the art market as we head into 2017.
