Little could have prepared the global markets specifically the art market for a pandemic like Covid-19 and its obstacles. But as with all crises, there is opportunity in these challenges! Auction houses and galleries have increased their capabilities with the addition of online sales platforms, and a focus on data and social media exposure. Artists too have been responding.

The Covid-19 pandemic has been a wake up call for many art businesses who are now reevaluating their business models. It's possible we'll continue to see new art trends accelerate to just months or seasons. Many changes will be permanent thanks to new business models allowing us to access information sooner than ever before. These changes will help art businesses stay competitive even during difficult times.
