2021: Art insights for year end

Insider takeaways on a red-hot art market

More than $2.3 billion worth of art sold during two weeks of art auction sales in New York last month, as reported by Artnet and the Wall Street Journal. Take a look at art market numbers like these, and you’ll see a reflection of collectors’ appetite and enthusiasm for new and traditional art. At art fairs from Basel to Paris, and New York to Miami, strong sales in the second half of the year have also been palpable for established and ultra-contemporary artists. The past continues to influence the present, and this continuity manifests in painting, as well as contemporary Indigenous artists. The art NFT marketplace also continues to evolve, and the art world attempts to bridge the aesthetic divide between older and younger generations. Tune in to discover these insights and more as we reflect at year-end on a red-hot art market.
