Podcast cover
Read more
Bloomberg's art market reporter, James Tarmy, discusses the unexpected corners of the Contemporary art market by looking at six different artists and their markets.

In between, Tarmy looks at Laura Owens, Lynette Yiadom-Boakye and Michael Krebber, all artists who have thriving but very different market trajectories. Each of these case studies attempts to ask how we can identify an artist whose work and reputation will last.

Rank #7: Timothy Taylor on Alex Katz, Ding Yi and Running a Global Art Gallery

Podcast cover
Read more
Timothy Taylor has a space in New York that measures 16 x 34 feet. The intimacy of the gallery appealed to his artist Alex Katz who helped create a show around one of his student sketchbooks. The small works set in a small space offer a very different experience of the artist known for his work at scale.

In this podcast, Timothy Taylor talks about the changing ways in which art dealers must operate to represent their artists well while coping with the constraints of ever-rising retail space rents in major metropolitan centers and the growing interest in art from collectors in far-flung cities across Asia and the West.

Taylor, who has just opened a show of Ding Yi's new work in his London space, has also brought Alex Katz and Sean Scully to China. He sees the way that dealers represent their artists requires thinking creatively and hints that the future of art dealing may already be upon us.

Rank #12: Phillips CEO Edward Dolman

"This is why Phillips positioning is right. We essentially believe in an international Contemporary art marketplace and we believe most tastes converge at some point." ——Edward Dolman, CEO Phillips Auction House

In the two and a half years since Edward Dolman took over the helm of Phillips auction house, he has been engaged in a remaking of the firm from an upstart auction house focusing on the fringes of the Contemporary art market to a serious alternative to Sotheby's and Christie's with a seat at the table when the biggest art deals are being made.

In this podcast, Dolman talks about how the expansion of the Contemporary art market has made Phillips's strategy viable and profitable.

He talks about the new team he has spent the last two years hiring—with leading specialists who decamped from Christie's and Sotheby's—and how their arrival will position the auction house to expand into new collecting fields and penetrate other regions of the world.

He discusses the growing financialization of the art market and the role guarantees play in facilitating art transactions, especially public ones. Dolman shares his view of the watch, jewelry and collectible markets. Finally, shares his thoughts on the global auction calendar and how that is likely to change in the coming months and years.

Lévy Gorvy is also exhibiting Sigmar Polke’s ‘Untitled (Couple)’ (1965-66), which was purchased directly from the artist and has never been seen publicly or published before, and ‘Girlfriends’ (1964-65), which featured prominently in Polke’s retrospectives in 2014 at New York’s Museum of Modern Art and London’s Tate Modern.
