Dear readers –
In 2001, China counted for less than 1% of the global art market. A decade later, it accounted for 30%.
This week, Quartz members can read the story behind this amazing boom, in our new report on China’s art economy. You can sign up here for a seven-day free trial of membership.
Quartz geopolitics reporter Annalisa Merelli wrote a deep-dive report that published today on what propelled the growth, what kind of art China makes, buys, and sells, and, as with so much in China, what role the state plays. Quartz members can access further installments on the topic throughout the week, and can join a video conference call with Annalisa on Friday.
Quartz members also can watch exclusive videos, including our Because China series that looks at how China is shaping the world all around us. Last week we published a new video series with Scott Kupor, managing partner at Andreessen Horowitz, about pitching investors.
If you sign up for a Quartz membership, you’ll also have access to all of our in-depth guides on areas of business disruption from the role of influencers in modern marketing to the new industry around CBD, and free invitations to members-only events.
I hope you’ll take advantage of the free trial of Quartz membership and benefit from all of this unique, in-depth reporting.
