Art Programs in New York:
At Christie's Education New York, the history of modern and contemporary art is explored through first-hand study of works in many media as well as through the history of the art market, patronage and art institutions. Works of art are studied in terms of their unique properties as objects but also in historical, social, economic, and visual contexts. Students address questions of quality and meaning, originality and authenticity, while developing practical and analytical skills.
By investigating the history of the modern art market as a type of patronage, students explore its development from the Academies and Salons of the 19th Century to the present. They examine how the collecting taste of prominent individuals has shaped many of the art world's key institutions, how avant-garde works by early 20th Century artists first reached their audiences through commercial gallery exhibitions and the role of corporations as patrons of the arts today.
