First Academic Seminar on Art Economics promotes discussion in the field
The FGV Center for Studies in Investment Processes, part of Fundação Getulio Vargas’ Sao Paulo School of Economics (FGV EESP), is holding the first edition of the Academic Seminar on Art Economics. This public event will take place on September 21, at 9 a.m., at FGV EESP.
The aim is to create a discussion forum for academics, researchers and art market professionals, promoting and disseminating scientific and applied research related to the art economy.
Art economics is part of the broader culture economy and it has been studied across the world since the 1980s. It studies economic data related to the creation, distribution and consumption of works of art, literature and similar creative products. It also analyzes the behavior of producers, buyers, governments, distributors, investors and other agents in the art market, as well as the inclusion of this asset class in diversified investment portfolios. To do this, it uses economic and econometric analysis. However, the study of the art market should not be confused with the study of the broader cultural industries, which also includes cinema, television and the mass media in general.
The FGV Center for Studies in Investment Processes’ Art Economics Study Group, made up of representatives of art institutions (such as galleries, auctions and art exhibition venues), art collectors, researchers, other people interested in the art market, and, above all, FGV professors and students (bachelors, master’s and doctoral students), has been meeting since 2016.
