The online course Payal Arora and I designed on emerging art markets in the digital age has gone live! It is part of a three-part MOOC on the business and practice of the contemporary art world. The course focuses on the internet and emerging art markets, and how they serve as game changers in a rapidly changing art world. We stimulate participants to explore seminal themes such as art quality, commercialization, digitization and globalization and how this relates to their own experiences, as well as contemporary events and scholarship. The course aims to probe and understand the exciting complexities and development of the global art market.
The course is made available through the ArtReview journal, and we are assisted by Liesbeth de Strooper (ACS) in handling the day to day management of the course. More information can be found at http://artstudiesonline.com/
