The Tribal Art Market 2000-2015

152 pages - A4 format

To learn all you need to know about the tribal art market, we have the pleasure to offer you the Artkhade and Art Media Agency's report on the state of the market over the last 15 years.

Over the years, the figures show a steady rise in the genre's total sales revenue, which skyrocketed from €13.7M in 2001 to €92.1M in 2014. The average sale price of a lot sold at auction rose accordingly, from €20,828 in 2001 to €30,000 in early 2012. The report aslo indicates an increase in the number of unsold lots, noting that "over fifteen years, the rise in prices has led to a more discerning collector profile". It also reveals that African objects are the ones most prized by collectors, ahead of those from Oceania. Nevertheless, this genre only represents 0.68% of the total auction house market. There is excellent news for France, too; the country retains its title as the global capital of tribal art, beating New York in terms of not only sales revenue but also sheer sales volumes.
