Amy Cappellazzo in Conversation

PODCAST: Former Christie's executive on the market and her new venture.

In collaboration with Art Market Monitor, artnet News presents a new podcast series exploring the global art market.

This week Marion Maneker speaks with Amy Cappellazzo, whose 13 years at Christie’s coincided with the expansion of the art market. Cappellazzo and longtime art adviser Allan Schwartzman recently cofounded a new firm called Art Agency Partners.

Listen to Amy Cappellazzo on market movements and more: “The most material move for the marketplace was around about 2004, but really really in 2005, when works of art could be collateralized for easy loans, easy capital. And the loan to value was much more generous than banks had ever done before, and they weren’t looking long down their noses at works of art as a suspicious asset class—instead, embracing it, seeing and understanding the liquidity within it.”
