According to “The Impact of COVID-19 on the Gallery Sector” survey conducted by Art Basel in the mid-2020, although the global art market has often been resilient to international economic and political events, it has faced some of its biggest challenges yet under the influence of COVID-19. Among others, the pandemic and the accompanying restrictive administrative measures taken by world governments all over the world have exerted a significant impact on such key economic indicators, as gallery employment, art sales, and organization of international art fairs. The international scholarly open access journal Arts (ISSN 2076-0752) invites submissions for the Special Issue on the topic of “Global Art Market in the Aftermath of COVID-19.”
Original academic papers (6,000-8,000 words long), whether qualitative or quantitative research methods based, should answer the following research question: How has COVID-19 affected the global art market?
We welcome both theoretical and empirical contributions that reveal various economic, social, and political consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic for the current state and future evolution of the global art market. If you are interested in contributing to the Special Issue, please send a short abstract (250-300 words) alongside with your CV to firstname.lastname@example.org by 31 December 2021.
