In this edition of the ArtTactic Podcast, Kelly Crow, art market reporter for The Wall Street Journal, joins us to recap last week’s Post-War & Contemporary auctions in New York. First, Kelly shares the market’s reaction to the incredible prices achieved at the auctions and if the art world is confident that these price levels can continue to be seen in the near-future. Then, she addresses the unprecedented prices earned by several up-and-coming artists at Christie’s 11th Hour charity auction and if these artists’ markets should be re-calibrated to reflect these new record prices. Lastly, Kelly touches on the maturation of the Basquiat market and if the market has come to a consensus on his art historical relevance and consequently going forward his market will remain at these elevated price levels.
