March 2011 Issue 6

Who drives the wheels in the art market? Collectors, galleries, artists, dealers, power brokers, savvy investors, flippers, fakes, or fund managers!! Does the bullish market follow a local or global mantra? Can its wobbling be attributed to some definite factors? Does a primary player transverse at a certain stage and don the role of secondary market player to pocket profits and sustain oneself? Is there a ‘business model’, which can be endorsed as ‘the order of the day’? Is there anything like the synergy levels of the two different market performers? Can the secondary market successfully manage a living artist’s primary market? These uncertainties, risks and misconceptions inherent in art speculation remain one of the most intriguing subjects of debate amongst the art fraternity. The word ‘market’ becomes a taboo.
