The 10 Best Booths at Art Basel in Miami Beach Online
In a normal year, this week would be the art world’s Miami Beach bacchanal, the final bash before the holidays. In the year of COVID-19, though, Art Basel in Miami Beach (ABMB)’s online edition is yet another virtual fair unfolding amid a landscape of uncertainty. And while some events are still happening in person in South Florida, ABMB’s usual rows upon rows of art-filled booths are a wholly digital experience for now. Dubbed “OVR: Miami Beach,” the fair brings together online viewing rooms for 255 galleries and opened to VIPs yesterday. It opens to the general public on Friday, and ends at midnight on Sunday. Here we take a look at some of its must-click booths.

Une sculpture défigurée, la restauration ratée

Une sculpture défigurée, la restauration ratée
Restauration ratée : « Tête de patate », la nouvelle sculpture défigurée qui agite l’Espagne
une statue fraîchement restaurée est ainsi devenue la cible de moqueries sur les réseaux sociaux.
La statue à présent défigurée est située au-dessus d'un établissement bancaire, dans la petite ville espagnole de Palencia. A l'origine, la sculpture - qui date de 1923 - représentait une femme à côté d'un animal. Mais, aujourd'hui, ses traits s'apparentent plutôt à ceux d'un personnage de dessin animé. C'est d'ailleurs le constat posé par Antonio Capel, l'homme qui a publié les premières photos sur Facebook. Le Guardian, lui, ne peut pas s'empêcher d'y voir le visage de Donald Trump. Peu importe ce que l'on y voit, le résultat est en tout cas catastrophique. Les médias l'ont déjà surnommée "tête de patate".

Steinmayr & Co, Austrian broker

Steinmayr & Co, Austrian broker
The company Steinmayr & Co has been known for 50 years as a successful insurance brokerage company in Tyrol. For many years, Steinmayr & Co has supported a wide range of art and cultural projects in the state.

Now Christian Steinmayr and his team are going one step further and want to support the local scene not only financially. To run an own gallery, is a big step, but not an illogical one. When art and culture meet business, can benefit both sides.
"We don't want to present established artists or exhibit artists just because of their name. I want everyone to be able to submit their works, far from age limits, education, origin and gender". 
Maria Köfler from Steinmayr & Co

How Has 2020 Impacted the Global Art Market?

How Has 2020 Impacted the Global Art Market?
The global art market is a $67 billion-a-year business and has been growing steadily in recent years, alongside the stock market and the housing market. But unlike some other markets, the COVID-19 pandemic has had less of an economic impact on the art market.
Interview of Sarah Thornton,Art Market Expert and Author :
I think we’re in the midst of a complete reevaluation of the canon, i.e., the top 50 most important artists. That’s because our sense of what’s important and our sense of the cultural landscape has shifted so dramatically. The art market is not a singular market. It is made up of thousands of artists’ markets, and while one rises, another descends.

Art market fluctuations related to the global Covid-19 pandemic: what about art investment?

<div>Art market fluctuations related to the global Covid-19 pandemic: what about art investment?</div>
Art isn't necessarily impacted by the risks commonly associated with the financial market, which makes it a lower call risk as an investment.
"Art collectors are waiting until the public part of the market opens to sell their art, while art investors are using this time to find interesting stressed opportunities," Sachs told Business Insider. "This global pandemic is clearly a new paradigm for all asset classes. We don't have any precedent or foresight in our recent history to understand the true long-term effects of such a crisis on the art market."
