The Shift: Art and the Rise to Power of Contemporary Collectors | Author: Marta Gnyp
In pursuing their passions and goals, collectors engage in ingenious ways with artists, galleries, museums, and auction houses. Examining the attraction of collecting, its multifaceted social sphere, and the financial opportunities it seems to offer, this book also addresses how taste is formed and identifies possible radical shifts in the art system today.
Here, the motives and behaviour of internationally operating collectors are analysed, disclosing the unwritten rules, active networks, and persistent myths of the rapidly growing field of art collecting. Based on the PhD research of Dutch art historian Marta Gnyp, it provides a wealth of information, theories, and empirical research.
