Best Practices in Art Advisory - The 101 Program for Art Advisors

Sep 13, 2017

Collecting art is exciting, intellectually stimulating and emotionally rewarding. And if you know what you’re doing, it could also be worth your while financially.

So how do you get to know the art world and make sure you buy quality art at a reasonable price? Well, unless you are willing to spend years acquiring the expertise required to confidently navigate the art world, it’s smart to engage an art advisor. That sounds straightforward. However, the art advisory profession is unregulated. That means that anyone can call themselves an art advisor.


In this article, we discuss how art advisors provide value to collectors like you and how you can vet your art advisor. We also introduce the new Art Advisory 101 Program, set to launch November 1, 2017, developed by Tang Art Advisory and One Art Nation. This online course was specifically created to guide aspiring art advisors on how to set up their businesses and how to manage the relationships with their collector clients in a market that continues to be highly opaque. Tang Art Advisory and One Art Nation are dedicated to disseminate best practice in the art advisory field, which does not just help art advisors but ultimately collectors, too.
