Art Basel and UBS present A Survey of Global Collecting in 2022, an international survey of high-net-worth collectors focusing on their spending, travel, and trade within the art market in 2022. Written by Dr. Clare McAndrew, founder of Arts Economics, and based on a survey of over 2,700 collectors in 11 key global markets conducted in collaboration with UBS, the report examines the willingness of collectors to travel and attend events post-COVID, as well as their changing sentiment towards buying locally versus internationally. The report also profiles the composition of their collections in terms of gender, artist status, and other key variables; and examines the international trade in art across borders.
Art Basel and UBS present The Art Market, an annual global art market analysis. The Art Market covers all aspects of the international market and highlights the most important developments in the previous year. Authored by Dr. Clare McAndrew, founder of Arts Economics, it is an independent and objective study, analyzing the global art market by looking at its different segments such as gallery business, auction houses, changing patterns of global wealth and art collecting, art fairs, online sales, and the economic impact of the art market in general.
