The new book by internationally renowned economist Andrés Solimano, The Evolution of Contemporary Arts Markets: Aesthetics, Money and Turbulence, provides an in-depth analysis of the evolution of the art market from a cross-sectional perspective at the intersection of art history, markets, finance, macroeconomics, inequality and social change. The book addresses the main features of modern art markets, such as complexity in art valuation, globalism, segmentation, financialization, liquidity and provenance issues.
How will growing wealth inequality, technology, financial crises and recessions shape the art sector in the coming years? Which are the key factors behind the increasing demand for Chinese art since the 2000s? Is art a safe-haven asset? These issues will be the object of a discussion between Andrea Goldstein, Giovanna Segre and Paolo Naldini during a meeting organized in collaboration with the Fondazione Santagata per l’Economia della Cultura.
Speakers: DOTT. ANDREA GOLDSTEIN (head of India/Indonesia/Tunisia Desk, Economic Department OCSE, Parigi); PAOLO NALDINI (director of Cittadellarte-Fondazione Pistoletto); PROF.SSA GIOVANNA SEGRE (professor of Economics of culture, University of Turin)
