The concept of an African American art market,  composed of objects, buyers, sellers and critics, appears to be trending for the past 10 years. This session will present a nuanced picture of how an African American art market has been conceptualized and how this understanding reflects a complex web of tensions and relationships. Consideration will be given to Trends in the Art Market, The Role of Black Art Advisors, Auctions and Fairs, and The Art of Making It.
