A Note to Our Readers
I’d like to share some news about Art Market Monitor: we’re joining Penske Media Corporation.
Art Market Monitor’s website, newsletters, and podcast will become a part of Penske’s Art Media Holdings along with Art in America and ARTnews.
Penske Media has a built a publishing model based upon providing readers with quality journalism and data about the worlds of entertainment, fashion and music. PMC have an extraordinary track record with Variety, Rolling Stone and WWD. Through those successes, they have built the infrastructure, experience and attitude that will help us realize many of the goals of Art Market Monitor.
Those goals are simply to make every aspect of art—its historical context, social value, aesthetic experience and market fluctuations—as engaging and compelling as, well, fashion, music, and entertainment.
What does this mean to our subscribers? Over time, we hope to expand AMM’s coverage and the range of its products. We hope to give our readers more reasons and opportunities to engage with art everyday.
