In this week’s edition of the ArtTactic Podcast, Zachary Small, contributor at The New York Times, joins us to discuss looming increased regulations in the US antiquities market. First, Zachary tells us about the National Defense Authorization Act passed by US Congress which includes new regulations for the antiquities market. Then, he reveals how much push back there has been from the art trade, who generally prefer a more opaque marketplace. Also, Zachary shares if the extent of illicit sales of antiquities is truly known. Finally, he offers a timeline for when the regulations may be implemented.
