The Art Market After Covid-19:
A Radical Break?

The Covid-19 pandemic has had a profound effect on every aspect of the world’s economy. How has the art market responded? In this conversation, we’ll discuss what new trends emerged during the pandemic—of particular importance is the macro-economic environment and the global appetite for art, as well as cultural and digital property. We’ll talk about the inherently social nature of the art market in the context of a pent-up desire for social interaction and try to assess the impact of enhanced technology and new consumer behavior upon live auctions, crowded art fairs and ever-global gallery empires.

Maxwell Anderson
President, Souls Grown Deep Foundation
& Community Partnership


Keynote Address

In his Keynote Address, Maxwell Anderson will address the challenges of appraising the work of Black artists who remained in the South instead of participating in the Great Migration. Works by the majority of the 160 artists represented in the Souls Grown Deep Foundation have found their way into leading art museums, and into art fairs and commercial galleries in the US and overseas, but the market is in flux and subject to bias. Mr. Anderson’s keynote will address the issues impacting the value around these artists.

The Resurrection; The Reascendancy of Connoisseurship 

The Old Master art market changed after the 2008 economic meltdown as interest in areas like Contemporary art accelerated.  In the last several years, however, auction houses and galleries have been embracing new strategies and cross-discipline marketing to engage a wider range of new and younger collectors.  This has resulted in rekindled momentum for the category.  In this panel, you will hear from dealer Robert Simon, Christie’s specialist Jonquil O’Reilly, and sculpture dealer Andrew Butterfield, about what’s going on in their market now, what’s selling, who’s buying, and at what prices.

2. Say it With Flowers: Victorian Jewelry’s Secret Language

Flowers, plants, and leaves have been a source of inspiration for jewelry makers for more than two millennia. Their beauty and delicacy have long been captured in precious metals, enamels, and colored gemstones. During the Victorian era, however, the latest developments in the fields of science, botany, literature, and art converged with the effects of globalization, industrialization, colonization, Romanticism, and the Suffragette movement to bring new meanings to floral decoration. From sentimentality to sexuality, 19th-century floral jewelry became encoded with its own special language.
