Christie’s New York Program Director Noah Kupferman will speak on ‘Art Investments and the Auction House’ as part of the Flinn Gallery's 90th Anniversary Lecture Series.

This Series offers the opportunity to hear from leading experts in their field on a range of art-related topics.

The third and final event in the series will take place on Wednesday May 15th, 2019 from 7:00 – 8:00 PM in the Flinn Gallery.

A pre-lecture reception with the speaker will take place at 5:30 PM in the Gallery, where the current exhibition “Time and Place: Works on Paper” will be on view.

The art market is larger and more diverse than ever before. Mr. Kupferman will provide insights into how and why it performs the way it does, how to transact in it successfully and the pivotal role the auction house plays in the process.

According to Kupferman, “Acquiring art can be quite a bit different from any other type of purchase a person may make. It is very knowledge-intensive and requires a significant amount of information and time, but this is also what makes collecting art so fascinating and so rewarding.”
