|ArtTactic Podcast: Matthew Slotover on Frieze Art Fair 2009|
|This week, ArtTactic is joined in the studio by Matthew Slotover, Co-Founder and Co-Director of Frieze Art Fair and Frieze Magazine. |
With the last year's edition taking place in the midst of the world financial crisis, Matthew shares with us his thoughts on what has happened over the last year, and what impact it has had on the art fair landscape.
With the Frieze Art Fair taking place earlier this month, Matthew discusses his impressions on the fair including the sentiment amongst galleries and collectors, the changing pace of transactions and how the reported number of sales compared to his personal expectations.
Also, Matthew addresses changing trends at the fair, including how galleries are curating their booths as well as the geographical breakdown of galleries applying to Frieze. Then, Matthew addresses whether or not Frieze has or ever will consider setting up a second fair outside of London.
Lastly, Matthew discusses why art fairs have become so increasingly significant within the art market over the past few years.
ArtTactic Podcast Series
ArtTactic launched its new ArtTactic Podcast series in May 2009 to create a platform where key international art market participants are given the opportunity to discuss their projects, their business, and their views on the art market. The podcasts also provide our listeners with a unique insight into a world which is notoriously difficult to penetrate. Since its inception, ArtTactic Podcasts has produced weekly programmes covering topics as wide-ranging as the art fund industry, to the state of the Chinese art market.
The Podcast programmes are divided into a number of different series, such as the Art Investment Series, Art World Series, Emerging Art Market Series, and the US & European Art Market series.
ArtTactic also provides video podcasts from many of its research reports, with unique analysis and commentary provided by Anders Petterson, founder of ArtTactic.
