New York, NY, USA – December 1, 2020 – With many people increasingly interested in acquiring art that features the work of a diverse array of artists, The Black Market delivers a history of Black Artists in the United States as well as a “how-to” blueprint for how anyone can start their own art collection. Moore begins his work by providing an overview of Black artists born between 1900-90 before discussing museums and their exhibitions, galleries and shows, auctions, and how to acquire art.
The Black Market also contains interviews from top collectors of Black art, advice from experts of Black art, and a collection of Moore’s essays with collectors of art from all walks of life in addition to an all-encompassing guide that includes a glossary of common terms and advice about art insurance, art storage, and common art maintenance practices.
“I wrote The Black Market to give people interested in art collection a blueprint to educate themselves about the history of Black art, which is increasingly in high demand, as well as collect it,” says Moore. “My hope is that the book will provide valuable guidance to all levels of a collector, whether someone is just getting started or has many years of experience.”
