Things in Asia go fast— speed may be what dif­fer­en­ti­ates col­lec­tors here. Look at film and video art: there are def­i­nitely col­lec­tors who buy videos. Art Basel in 2014 sold a dozen videos on open­ing day to a pri­vate Main­land Chi­nese col­lec­tor, and per­haps in a newer mar­ket there’s a more of a sense of what art is and what is vi­able and buyable to col­lect, ver­sus an older mar­ket. I think the qual­ity of art­work has also been get­ting bet­ter and bet­ter, es­pe­cially from our young Asian gal­leries.
