Chinese Contemporary Art today [26.10.2009]

Over the last five years, Asian and particularly Chinese art has been one of the most dynamic segments on the secondary art market. Alongside the discovery and value appreciation of artists now recognised as the leading lights of Asian art, the phenomenal success of Chinese art at auctions as of 2004 generated wild expectations amongst artists from the region and prompted speculators and investment funds to snap up works by unknown signatures in the hope of riding the next auction rocket.

New markets and the crisis [01.02.2009]

The most speculative and volatile markets over the last four years, emerging art markets have propelled a number of Chinese, Indian, Russian and Middle-Eastern contemporary artists into the global limelight with extraordinary speed. But with so many young artists fetching such big figures at auctions, some kind of meltdown was inevitable.

Contemporary drawing [17.03.2008]

In France, contemporary drawing is now exhibited widely, having shrugged off its image as a secondary medium. Its new standing is due, in particular, to the establishment of a Drawing Prize by the Daniel and Florence Guerlain Foundation, the creation of the “Paris Capital of Drawing” label by the Contemporary Drawing Fair which is celebrating its tenth anniversary between the 10 and 14 April and the birth of Slick drawing which takes place on the same dates. However, the auction houses are not profiting from the buzz generated by these events to give more space to contemporary drawings in their sales, with no specialist sale being held in France.

Chinese Contemporary Art Market – Cultural revelation [31.05.2007]

Speculation is showing no signs of slowing and auction sales are ever stronger, and prices ever higher. The price appreciation has been staggering for the generation of young Chinese artists and the number of investors continues to grow. It often takes only a few years for a Chinese artist to see a tenfold price increase, as with ZHANG Xiaogang or CAI Guoqiang to cite just a couple of examples. Symbolic of the price increases: the ten most successful auctions of contemporary Chinese art have been recorded over the past twelve months. In the end, in 2006, 31.3% of the Chinese contemporary artworks sold at auction achieved more than $100,000. Given such price levels, the proceeds on Chinese contemporary art sales increased by a factor of ten in 2006.
