Course Description

This program offers students a unique opportunity to grasp the complexities of the international art world and its markets and provides the tools to conduct an art market analysis. The goal of this course is to present the art market from an interdisciplinary perspective by analyzing the behavior of its main players, both on the demand (visitors, collectors, corporate) and on the supply side (artists, art dealers, auction houses and fairs). Advice will be given about how best to manage private art collections, providing essential insights on art wealth management, art investment, art governance, and succession planning for art assets. The course alternates between front lessons, practical training sessions, and testimonials with experts and practitioners.  Along with external visits, the program provides a singular platform for students to directly learn from and interact with a broad spectrum of leaders in the field, including dealers, collectors, consultants and museum directors.
