According to a recent survey by Deloitte, 78% of wealth managers believe that art should be part of a wealth management offering, up from 55% in 2014. Join art market experts Madelaine D’Angelo, Thomas Galbraith and Michael Phillips Moskowitz as they discuss the future of the Contemporary Art market, with a focus on collector behavior and art as an alternative asset.
This session will take place offline at 1pm on November 5th at The Accessible Art Fair, which breaks barriers by enabling expertly vetted artists to show and sell their work directly to collectors at the iconic New York City landmark, the National Arts Club in Gramercy Park.
A specialist in the intersection of fine art and technology, data analysis of the global art market, and collector behavior, Madelaine founded Arthena to bridge the gap between art advisors and the next generation of great collectors. Her expertise is honed from a multitude of art institutions such as the Peggy Guggenheim Collection, the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, and the Smithsonian. At Harvard, Madelaine specialized in Museums under the guidance of Phillippe de Montebello, the Director Emeritus of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. In addition to founding Arthena, Madelaine is committed to fostering cross-industry collaboration by using her extensive experience as a strategic advisor for several art and technology ventures. She is a committee member of the American Alliance of Museums, American Association of Appraisers, and International Council of Museums.
