The Art Market, Global Economy and Information Transparency
AbstractThe economic role of art is sustained by complex marketing processes, which tend to modify the aims and conditions of artistic enterprise. The great dynamism which characterises the global markets in which businesses move nowadays also affects artistic enterprises and hence the artist-cumentrepreneur. In the global art market, therefore, information flow between demand, supply and distribution, risks being asymmetrical. With globalisation, the art market has recorded considerable changes. The market has become internationalised up to the point of becoming a worldwide market. On the whole, globalisation of the art market appears to have favoured an increase in supply and its revitalization, too. Demand has undergone a remarkable growth, probably due also to its fragmentation and diversification.
