Course Description

The Art Business short course will introduce candidates to the US$68bn global art world and its complex and often secretive practices. It will explore art market players and their interconnectedness with other sectors, including the worlds of finance, law, marketing, insurance, and logistics, to name a few. The course will cover the roles of galleries and auction houses, art finance and art advisers, as well as pricing and unique business models in this opaque industry. You will learn how the art world behaves and what effect it has on the wider business world, including applying lessons from operating in a highly emotional and disruptive sector. At the end of the programme, candidates will have a better understanding of the international art world and how art is valued and value created in this dynamic industry.
