Highlights from New Models in the Art World

Yieldstreet x Athena Art Finance’s Naomi Baigell, MD – Client Relations & Marketing, along with Jeremy Hodkin of The Canvas and Adrien Meyer, Chairman of Global Private Sales at Christie’s, discuss the evolution of the art market over the last few months and what to expect in the market during the fourth quarter.

Throughout the webinar, topics covered included:

  • A bird’s eye view of the art world during summer 2020
  • The art mecca that developed in the Hamptons as a number of blue-chip, Post-War & Contemporary dealers along with a few of the auction houses set up shop there for the foreseeable future in order to better serve their clients who have fled to their vacation homes. 
  • Market sentiment moving into the fourth quarter 2021. Have demand and investments in art increased as the stock market and economy have become more volatile?
