In this week’s episode of the ArtTactic Podcast, Nate Freeman, senior staff writer at ARTnews, joins us to recap last week’s Frieze Art Fair as well as the major October contemporary auctions. First, Nate explains why this year’s edition of the fair was particularly successful for exhibiting galleries. Then, he discusses the shift in power from galleries to blue-chip artists, who are more frequently calling the shots when it comes to including their artworks in galleries’ booths. Also, for those who weren’t able to attend Frieze, Nate identifies some of the most talked about artworks from this year’s fair. Additionally, Nate shares some of the major takeaways from last week’s contemporary auctions in London and speculates where the art market stands at the end of a busy week in London.
