The International Art Gallery Industry: A Structural Analysis

September 7, 2017


This paper presents a detailed and comprehensive portrait of today’s art gallery scene. It draws on the largest survey ever done on art galleries. It presents a market size overview, including revenue and profit numbers, statistics of the number of exhibitions, employees and sector focus. The paper helps to gain an insight into an industry that has – so far – been left outside of data analysis.
