Anders Petterson – ArtForecaster
In this week’s episode of the ArtTactic Podcast, Anders Petterson, founder and managing director of ArtTactic, joins us to share some of the forecasts from ArtForecaster, ArtTactic’s forecasting game in which competitors predict what prices artworks will sell for at auction. First, Anders shares a brief overview of ArtForecaster and what motivates individuals to continue to participate in these art auction forecasting competitions. Then, Anders discusses four important artworks for sale in the May post-war and contemporary sales by Damien Hirst, Rudolf Stingel, Peter Doig and Mark Grotjahn as well as what forecasters believe they will sell for ahead of the auctions. Lastly, Anders provides us with some perspective on this auction season by comparing it to previous seasons.
