LATEST ISSUE:

JOURNAL FOR ART MARKET STUDIES (JAMS)

Re-presenting the Art Market
Volume 5, Number 1, 2021

Guest Editor: Paul Melton (FIT State University of New York)

Contributions by Michael Hutter, Paul Melton, Nick Pearce, Claudia Quinones Vila, Bernd Friedrich Schon, Jeffrey Taylor

A public fascination with the art market and its players, with its layers of duplicity and authenticity, visibility and opacity, has long reverberated in fictional accounts, be it in film or popular culture. The new issue of the Journal for Art Market Studies explores the themes of such representations, taking the interdisciplinary approach to rarely visited territory.
