Does Price Matter?: A Critical Assessment Of Prices In The Contemporary Chinese Art Market

£29.99

Product description

Auction prices for contemporary Chinese art have been soaring. The contemporary Chinese art market is hot and draws remarkable attention from both the art world and the general public. High prices were achieved at auction houses worldwide. Along with this boom of contemporary Chinese art, important questions need to be raised: Who are the major players in this market Is it a lasting interest or just an ephemeral trend Will the fast boom result in a fast burst Does the success in the market result in or derive from popular and critical success Do the high prices affect the creation of artworks How do the prices achieved for these art works reveal underlying meanings By analysing the price records of contemporary Chinese art at the main auction houses, which is readily transparent and accessible through a variety of databases, supplemented by case studies of key artists, collectors, curators and other major players, this thesis will investigate the reasons for and explore the meaning of current pricing of contemporary Chinese art. It will assess how high prices are not only significant for the art market but also impact the critical reception of the artwork. In very good condition with slight marking to the cover.

Oxfam Books & Music Olney

Welcome to Oxfam Books And Music Olney, situated just off the market square in Stanley Court opposite the Co-Op. Come and browse our extensive selection of books, music, DVDs, computer games and cards. In our shop you can discover a great range of material from the latest modern fiction to classic literature and vintage LPs. We are always happy to receive your donations of books or music, and you can choose to Gift Aid them to Oxfam. We might also be able to collect particularly large donations - just ask. We are always interested in hearing from people who wish to volunteer with us. Just pop in to collect an application form.

Could you help us by collecting donations from donors homes? Our shop receives many offers of generous donations that we have to turn down as we do not have volunteers able to collect. We would ask you to collect in your own car, at your convenience and reimburse your petrol costs. It might be a couple of times a month and would make a really big difference to our ability to make money.
