In this week’s episode of the ArtTactic Podcast, Robin Pogrebin, culture reporter for The New York Times, joins us to discuss the recent phenomenon of an increasing number of small and mid size galleries closing in the US. First, Robin identifies art fairs, social media and mega galleries as the major reasons why this trend is occurring at this time. Also, Robin speculates if this pattern is temporary or if a shift in the way art transactions occur is responsible. Then. she explains why social media hasn’t helped small and mid size galleries as much as they anticipated. Lastly, Robin reveals what typically happens to artists represented by these now closed galleries.
