Matthew Israel takes the reader on a cross-continental journey through a year in the field of art with his “A Year in the Art World” by focusing on behind the scene events of the international art market. Israel’s book, which he prepared by participating in art events in different cities, especially in Los Angeles, Paris, New York, Basel, Venice, and Hong Kong, and meeting with curators, critics, gallerists, art consultants, and artists, is an insider view to the culture and art industry. During his one-year journey, Israel seeks answers to many current issues and influential events about what is happening in the artists’ studio, what happens at the auction house before a big sale, how museums are adapting to the age of social media, and the nature of art fairs. In addition to his interviews with key figures in the art world, Israel’s experience as a curator and art historian makes “One Year in the Art World”, is a valuable statement about the functioning of the culture-art scene in the pre-Covid era. You can buy Matthew Israel’s book titled “A Year in the Art World”, published by Thames and Hudson and in 2020, from Pandora bookstore and Amazon.
