A 2020 mid-year survey

Art Basel and UBS present 'The Impact of COVID-19 on the Gallery Sector', a 2020 mid-year survey written by Dr. Clare McAndrew, Founder of Arts Economics. This independent report provides a unique analysis of how the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted the global Modern and contemporary gallery sector throughout the first six months of 2020. It also presents the results of a survey of high net worth (HNW) collectors across three major art markets – the US, UK, and Hong Kong SAR (China) – with a particular focus on how the COVID-19 crisis has changed their interactions with galleries in the art market.
