I have been appointed Professor in the Cultural Economics of Global Art Markets at the Erasmus University. I look forward to continue my teaching and research on the history and functioning of art markets, the notion of quality in the visual arts, emerging art markets and the role of intermediaries in the art world as arbiters of taste. The oratie (public lecture) will take place in Rotterdam on Friday 12 June 2015 at 16:00.
Payal and I were interviewed at the offices of Art Review in London to discuss some of the recent developments in the contemporary art market, and especially pertaining to emerging art markets. This video contains excerpts of the interview on the New Cultural Commons.
