In this episode of the ArtTactic Podcast, Katya Kazakina, art market reporter for Bloomberg News, joins us to recap last week’s Art Basel Miami Beach. Katya begins by discussing how strong sales were at the fair this year as well as discussing what the overall mood was like in regard to the state of the contemporary art market. She also elaborates on the idea of the disconnect between the art and financial markets and to what extent that concept was on the mind of collectors in Miami. Katya also touches on some noticeable trends on the type of art on display at the fair and the interesting trend of blue-chip collectors beginning to significantly collect emerging artists.
