The United States is the largest art market in the world, and with its unique combination of rich people and light oversight, Florida is a natural nexus for art-related fraud. This week, Tess Davis, Executive Director of the Antiquities Coalition, guides us through this new and foreign world of art, antiquities, and the fraudsters who bring their chaotic energy to Art Basel Miami each year.
Come for the interview about daring art heists, stay for a rousing game of Baseled in Miami!
You can learn more about the Antiquities Coalition at theantiquitiescoalition.org and across all the social networks.
(Also, while Picasso’s Visage aux Mans has not been recovered according to the Internet, it does appear to be for sale on Sotheby’s website!)
