1- THE BOOM IN THE PRICES AND VALUES OF CONTEMPORARY LATIN AMERICAN ART

The gallery owner Marcelo Aravena has written a remarkable article on how Latin American art has experienced a real boom in recent years.

  • Aravena reveals that currently in Latin America there are about 25 artists who have exceeded one million dollars per work,thus managing to position their work with a high standard of values ​​and, perhaps above all, with regular frequency.

  • This is explained – as he says – by the fact that the works of these artists enter a circuit of value, which is a process in which various factors intervene that enhance and interact with each other, transferring both commercial and symbolic value to the works of art.

3- THE TICKETMASTER DEBACLE IN THE USA.

The New York Times published a devastating article about the serious problems facing the ticket company founded in 1976 in Arizona.

  • For the author of the note, the mismanagement of Ticketmaster in the sale of tickets for the new tour of Taylor Swift has led to everyone from Swift fans to US politicians discussing Live Nation’s excessive influence on live music.

  • But, according to him, the problem started much earlier. And one of the causes dates back to 2010when Ticketmaster and Live Nation merged.

  • Today, Live Nation Entertainment controls 70 percent of the major live event ticket and venue market in the United States. It has also bought, over the past decade, a number of companies in the live music ecosystem, including promoters. So if an artist plays one of their venues, they are often required to sign with a promoter owned by Ticketmaster and Live Nation.
  • Although the US Justice Department says it is investigating Live Nation and its practices (which some refer to as “monopoly”), artists, fans and industry players are working together to drive changes that will improve the live music experience for all.
