“Miami is in their own backyard,” said Michael Plummer, principal of ArtVest Partners LLC, a New York investment advisory firm for art collectors. “I have a good friend who lives in Rio (de Janeiro) who makes a point of coming to the fair in Miami, but he would never go to the one in Switzerland, it’s a different mindset.”
Please join Artvest for a curated VIP tour of the American International Fine Art Fair, led by Corfield Morris, on February 8, 2012.
Michael Plummer discusses the state of the art market for the VIP Art Fair.
“This scene has grown in terms of glamour, prestige and notoriety,” says Michael Plummer, the co-founder of Artvest Partners, who says that the fair and the surrounding events are a major weapon in the dealers’ arsenal. The US art calendar was previously dominated by the New York auction scene, and Miami has helped to correct the balance.
Artvest is pleased to announce that Michael Plummer will be a featured speaker at Deloitte’s 4th Annual Art & Finance Conference on December 2, 2011 during Art Basel Miami Beach. This year’s conference is entitled Rethinking the Art & Finance Worlds: new issues, new boundaries, new actors and will underscore the importance of art assets in wealth and asset management.
