The art market has expanded dramatically in the 21st century, reshaped by trends in the broader global economy. With the increasing concentration of collectors’ taste around contemporary art―and in particular, its reliably popular superstar artists―power has been consolidated in the hands of select players in the global market, including mega-galleries and multinational auction houses.
In this update, Grove Art publishes 9 new articles, 9 emendations, and 45 article revisions. Benezit publishes 1 emendation and 51 new articles.
