It’s no exaggeration to say that New York is the engine that fuels the global art market. The inauguration New York Art Market Report– commissioned by independent art fair organizers and Crozier Fine Arts and compiled by Arts Economics founder Clare McAndrew – determined that the Big Apple represents up to a huge 90 percent of the total value of artistic transactions in the United States. But who are the people behind these transactions, and how did life in the metropolis influence their approach? In other words, what defines and motivates a “New York collector”?

In this latest edition of Artnet Talks, three leading art collectors and an art advisor, all committed New Yorkers, take us behind the scenes of their experiences in the city and tell us why they’re so sure she’s on the point to rebound after confinement.

A Q&A session with the audience will follow the chat. (Please note the time zone for the start time.)
