Insider's Look at Fabulous Upcoming Museum Exhibitions
The international art calendar continues with art fairs from Hong Kong Basel to Art Basel Switzerland, and the trophy culture in the top tier art world rolls on. Recently, the Financial Times indicated that Sotheby's reported Greater China clients
spent more than a billion dollars across Sotheby's
salesrooms in 2014!
Notable global trends include continued interest in ceramics as contemporary sculpture, and more site-specific commissions - paintings, sculptures, works on paper and photographs. Although the blue chip artists grab the headlines, there are still impressive, medium-sized paintings and works on paper to be found under $8,500.
As the major New York art fairs have wrapped up, it is time to look forward to some amazing upcoming museum exhibitions.
Get ready for the May 2015 Frieze New York!
As always: Buy what you love!
Very best regards,
