African Art: Spotlight on Auction Houses, Part 2

Posted in Art Market  |  May 25, 2019
Over the past twenty years, the market for African art has given rise to many more artists, galleries, curators, and auctioneers. While African art is on par with art worldwide to a certain degree, it still cannot fetch the prices attained by international works of art. African art is unrealistically cheap but the emergence of new auction houses on the continent is helping to change that perception. These auction houses aim to create new energy and trust in the African art market, and get a better representation of the African artists within the international art market.
