To mark the opening of the fall auction season, we are pleased to release the first artnet Intelligence report. A joint collaboration between artnet News and the artnet Price Database team, this is not your typical art-market report—it’s something new. Highlights include:

  • Survivors of the Zombie Apocalypse — an in-depth look at which young artists’ markets are still kicking after the collapse of the speculative Zombie Formalist phenomenon
  • The 5 Biggest Myths About the Chinese Art Market — a data-driven investigation of the scourge of nonpayment, the regulatory red tape, and other factors that make for a less-than-pretty picture
  • Who Are Today’s Most Bankable Artists? — the answers might surprise you (and the cohort is changing)
  • The Art Market by the Numbers — a comprehensive look at the global auction market in the first half of 2018—in a fun, snackable format

We hope you enjoy this first artnet Intelligence report. Click below to download the full report, and feel free to share!
