With newspapers in terminal decline, what future for arts journalism? - The Art Newspaper
The most exhilarating aspect of tomorrow’s arts journalism will be its unpredictable hybridity. It will be an undertaking where nimble entrepreneurs sustain criticism and reporting through a mix of advertising, licensing, social networks, donations, digital space rental, and barter arrangements—whatever works.

The Fall Auction Season Opens With Little Enthusiasm -
Amid fears of an art-market meltdown, an international crowd of dealers, collectors and onlookers packed Sotheby’s for the start of the important fall auction season. While many were expecting a funeral, the results were spotty: a relief to those who thought the appetite for art was all but dead, but hardly the success story of seasons past.

Buying frenzy lights up Iranian art market « Art Radar Asia
The prices have soared by a factor of 20 within two years, the galleries are packed with prospective buyers and the works are both modern and daring, but this is not a description of the art scene in New York, Paris or London, but Tehran.

Saatchi’s upcoming Middle Eastern exhibition
As financial markets roil , art collectors seeking a safe haven eye up opportunities in the Middle East. If anything, some players expect an even stronger market in the Middle East than in China, because so many of the art initiatives-to showcase the region’s artists as well as import Western art-have the direct backing of the government or royal families. Abu Dhabi is planning to spend $50 million to fill its Louvre.

Damien Hirst’s Mammoth Art Auction Attracts Plenty of Bidders, Despite Financial Turmoil -
Tobias Meyer, worldwide head of contemporary art at Sotheby’s, explained the total this way: “Damien Hirst is a global artist that can defy local economies.” Jose Mugrabi, a New York dealer, had another take: “Today people believe more in art than the stock market. At least it’s something you can enjoy.”

Damien Hirst The shark's last move
The fact that Mr Hirst has been able to produce enough work to fill 223 lots has to do with the fact that he is no longer an artist, in the normal sense of the word, but the head of a global brand selling instantly recognisable work that is made in factories.

Art Scene in Dubai -
It is a truth of the art market that the richest nations always call the tune, setting global tastes, anointing the next stars, and establishing trends that the market may follow for years to come. By that logic—and the Middle East's seemingly unstoppable economic rise—the Damien Hirst of 2020 could be a native Farsi speaker.
