In this week’s episode of the ArtTactic Podcast, art dealer, writer and curator, Kenny Schachter, returns to the podcast to preview the upcoming Post-War & Contemporary auctions in London. Specifically, Kenny shares his thoughts as well as his predictions for six lots upcoming at auction which are also featured in our ArtTactic Forecaster game, in which contestants play for free, predicting auction prices for artworks coming up for sale. Kenny examines and shares his prediction for Gerhard Richter’s Abstraktes Bild (Lot 12) in Sotheby’s Evening Sale, Christopher Wool’s Untitled (Lot 32) in Christie’s Evening Sale, Richard Prince’s Untitled (Four Women With Hats) (Lot 75) in Christie’s Evening Sale, David Ostrowski’s F (Gee Vaucher) (Lot 1) in Phillips’ Evening Sale, Wade Guyton’s Untitled (Lot 5) in Phillips’ Evening Sale and Lucien Smith’s Boys Don’t Cry (Lot 4) in Phillips’ Evening Sale. Lastly, Kenny touches on the significant price differential for young artists in the primary market versus the secondary market and tells us if he were advising a client, when he would and when he wouldn’t recommend bidding on artworks by these young artists at auction.
