In this week’s episode of the ArtTactic Podcast, Simon Hornby, President of Crozier Fine Arts, a New York City based art storage, shipping and logistics company, joins us to discuss the art storage industry. First, given the significant expansion of the art market over the past decade as well as the increase in the diversity of collectors, Simon reveals what trends he’s seeing in the art storage space. Then, Simon explains the different motivations why art storage is utilized by collectors and galleries and reveals to what extent art storage is simply used as a parking spot for collectors to buy and sell art. Also, he details why climate change has lead to an increased demand for art storage. Finally, Simon tells us the degree to which art storage facilities located within freeports compete with those located outside of them.
