In this week’s episode of the ArtTactic Podcast, Judd Tully, edtior at large of Art+Auction, joins us to recap last week’s record-setting May Contemporary auctions in New York. First, Judd focuses on the top end of the art market as he discusses the increasing presence of collectors from outside of the US and Europe who are trophy-hunting for blue chip artworks. Then, he compares this market boom to past heights, highlighting the significant differences in the makeup of today’s marketplace. Lastly, Judd speculates why the younger artists that dominated headlines in recent auctions had a much smaller presence last week in New York. Visit ArtTactic here.
