Key Market Trends in Valuing Traditional African Art: On-Demand
Registration Information
August 24, 2020 | -
On-Demand Recording

In this live webinar, Elizabeth Morton, Ph.D., will examine
recent shifts in the acquisition of traditional African art.
Values now are being driven by two key factors: one is
an emerging group of web-savvy collectors; second is
the importance of compliance with the UNESCO World
Heritage Conventions. Morton will also consider currents
in the popularity of cultural styles, media, physical
characteristics, and provenance in the market assessment
of traditional African Art.

This is a recording of a live webinar previously held on August 24, 2020.
