In this week’s episode of the ArtTactic Podcast, Noah Horowitz, executive director of The Armory Show, joins us to recap last week’s contemporary and modern art fair. First, Noah identifies any visual trends on display at the fair, discussing the different kinds of contemporary art presently being made. Then, Noah recaps the pulse of the market at the fair, identifying some prominent sales that occurred. Also, he discusses the increasingly competitive art fair landscape and how the Armory Show has continued to improve different components of the fair to attract prominent collectors, galleries and other art market participants. Finally, from a broader perspective, Noah identifies a few patterns occurring in the contemporary art marketplace that makes him feel good about the overall health of the market, as well as a few activities that give him some pause about the sustainability of the heightened prices and demand we’re witnessing.
