TEFAF Art Market Report: The Chinese Art Market to be launched at TEFAF Maastricht 2019
China forms the subject of this year’s TEFAF Art Market Report, which will be launched on March 15th at TEFAF Maastricht, which runs from 16-24 March.
Entitled TEFAF Art Market Report: The Chinese Art Market, the new report has been written by Kejia Wu, Professor at Sotheby’s Institute New York and Columnist for FTChinese. The report will be downloadable from the TEFAF website from 10am CET on Friday 15th March.
The art market in China has achieved extraordinary growth over a 40-year period to become the second largest market in the world. Its two largest local auction houses, Poly Auctions (founded in 2003) and China Guardian (founded in 1993) are now ranked as the third and fourth largest auction houses globally after Christie’s and Sotheby’s.
This report, through in-depth research and conversations with key market players, aims to elucidate this phenomenon by presenting an historical review of how art commerce in China started in the modern era and eventually developed and evolved into the market we recognize today. The report includes a survey with leading art collectors in China to show why they collect, what they are collecting, and what they plan to collect in the future.
TEFAF Art Symposium
The report will be launched at the TEFAF Art Symposium with a presentation by Kejia Wu. This will be followed by an interview with Kou Qin, President and CEO of Guardian Investment Holdings Co. Ltd and General Manager of Guardian Art Centre and a panel discussion Collectors and Collecting: The Landscape of the Art Market in China, moderated by Thomas Marks, Editor of Apollo. TEFAF is delighted that the eminent collector, Liu Gang has agreed to join the panel discussion.
The TEFAF Art Symposium will take place at the MECC, Maastricht at 10am on 15th March 2019.
