Art Tactic - Art Market Report June 2008

Rawfacts - June 2008 Issue
The contemporary art market seems to defy gravity, and the May auctions performed generally in line with expectations. One thing is clear, the art market has polarised around the top-end, which largely appeals to recession proof buyers. But what is happening to the art further down the value chain? Anders Petterson takes a closer look at the situation.

Below is a short summary of the June issue:
Indian art market hit by econonomic woes: The overall ArtTactic Indian Art Market Confidence Indicator fell 13% from the last reading in October 2007. However, despite the fall in the overall ArtTactic Indian Art Market Confidence, the confidence in both the Modern, and Contemporary Indian art markets increased significantly, up 17% and 6% respectively.

Thanks for your comment. As you said, we living in the country appreciate the market dynamics in a slightly different manner, but I also think that a report like this presents a good perspective from an international stand point - which is always important to have.
