Welcome to the Art Angle, a podcast from Artnet News that delves into the places where the art world meets the real world, bringing each week’s biggest story down to earth. Join us every week for an in-depth look at what matters most in museums, the art market, and much more with input from our own writers and editors as well as artists, curators, and other top experts in the field.



This week, we’re hopping into a time machine and traveling to the not-so-distant future to answer this question: how will the technological tools being developed today shape the art world of tomorrow?

It’s a question we delve into in the fall 2021 edition of the Artnet Intelligence Report, which is out now. The theme of the issue is the Roaring 2020s and inside, we introduce you to the collectors who are looking to shift the axes of power in the art world, the galleries that will serve as social hubs once we get back out and about, and, as we’ll discuss today, the tech that will transform the business.

To get the lowdown on what tools will define the next decade of the trade, we spoke with Artnet News Art Business Editor Tim Schneider, who wrote a feature on the subject for the report.
