New Ways to Discover Art
The online market has come a long way since the first online art businesses emerged in the late 1980s.
As technology is improving and the internet is increasingly being relied upon by the art world, the art market is following, albeit at a slower pace. This panel discussed the growth of the online art market and how professionals and individuals are using the web to discover, browse, and learn about art. Although the online art market is unlikely to replace the traditional art market, it offers significant potential for helping collectors, galleries, auction houses, and other market players with their everyday art needs and more. Participants will learn:
- How to utilize the web for researching and finding art to support offline efforts
- Why the online art market is gaining in relevance and importance and what it means to collectors, galleries and auction houses.
The talk was recorded live during Art Southampton’s panel series on July 25, 2014. Watch VIDEO
