Earlier today the art market analysis service Skate’s released its Art Fairs Report, part of a series of 16 annual reports covering, “art industry earnings and statistics from listed companies (tracked with Skate’s Art Stock Index since 2009), art trading within the premium segment of the market, art fairs, auctions and e-commerce rankings.”
In the report, Skate’s confirms that, “in spite of all the much-talked-about proliferation of art fairs around the world, visitor numbers for fairs are significantly lower than those for nonmarket (and longer-lasting) art extravaganzas like biennials and are incomparable with figures for major museums.”
Head over to Skate’s for a free preview of the report and a list of its major findings.
