In this week’s edition of the ArtTactic Podcast, Melanie Gerlis, art market editor of The Art Newspaper, returns to recap this year’s Frieze Art Fair as well as the October contemporary auctions in London. As Frieze week continues to grow each year with additional events, Melanie tells us what it’s like to attend several functions and ultimately if Frieze week has grown too large. Then, she dissects this year’s Frieze Art Fair and identifies some of the noticable differences from a year ago. One of the biggest topics presently being discussed is the recent acceleration of several young artists’ markets and Melanie explains if this is a good or bad thing for the health of the art market. She also recaps the October sales, while claiming that most are looking forward to November to assess the sentiment of the marketplace.
