Art is very big business. Since 2000 the contemporary art market's turnover growth alone has jumped by 1,370%, and today artworks are coveted by investors as well as by collectors. At the heart of what has become a vast international business stand the major auction houses, and first among them, Christie's, owned by François Pinault's holding company, Groupe Artémis.
In a unique partnership, the Arts Arena (www.artsarena.org) and the American Chamber of Commerce in France (www.amchamfrance.org) present an exceptional trio of specialists to discuss the very big business of art, with a special transatlantic focus on the Paris and New York markets.
Join us to hear Cécile Verdier, President of Christie's France, Anika Guntrum, Vice-President of Christie's France and International Director, Impressionist and Modern Art, and Emilie Villette, Business Development Director of Christie's France. A Q&A will follow the conversation.
