First, Scott tells us about the term he coined and the corresponding phenomenon happening at auction. Then, Scott identifies some of the noticeable differences between this current art market cycle and previous ones. Also, he discusses the role that Instagram is playing in the art market to push demand and prices for art by emerging artists.
