In this week’s episode of the ArtTactic Podcast, Michael Moses, co-founder of Beautiful Asset Advisors and the Mei Moses Index, joins us to discuss the trend of art flipping and if it is occurring more frequently in the current art market compared to in the past. First, Michael defines two types of art flipping, one which is measured by the duration of time in which an artwork appears then re-appears at auction and the other, in which an artwork is sold at auction only a short period of time after being created. Analyzing the first type of art flipping, Michael tells us that while on average the holding period of an artwork has decreased over time, the current holding time is actually barely longer than it was over the past few years during the art market peak.
