Over the last five years, the internet has dramatically opened up what was once an exclusive art world to millions of new consumers. A growing number of online galleries and digital platforms are engaging a new audience of art buyers, who have never bought art before and are increasingly comfortable making online purchases. Equally, via these same online platforms as well as through social media, artists from around the world are able to reach a global community of collectors. This talk will explore the ways in which these new technologies are democratizing the buying and selling of art.
