New York, NY, USA – September 14, 2020 – Black artists in the United States have a remarkable history that’s often not as deeply understood as it should be. This carries over into the art collecting world, with many potential collectors of Black artists existing but not quite knowing where to start or what direction to take. In exciting news, an expert on and enthusiast for Black artists, Charles Moore is stepping up to help. Answering a clear need, Moore recently announced his new book that dives into these subjects providing insight on Black art history, and a blueprint on starting to collect art will go on pre-sale soon. Not surprisingly, the interest surrounding his “The Black Market: A Guide to Art Collecting” is high and rising.
“Before you begin collecting art, I recommend collecting books–about art, and learn to develop your taste,” commented Moore. “I think ‘The Black Market’ would be a good addition to your collection. I’ve tried my best to give some valuable guidance.”
According to Moore, the book is a guide to helping a person interested in art collecting to learn more about the subject. It gives a brief art history lesson about Black artists born between 1900 to 1990. It then moves on to discussing literature to review and read to help learn more about black culture and black artists. “The Black Market” also touches on a few museums and their exhibitions, galleries and their shows, auctions, and the interesting results they can deliver. A number of eye-opening interviews are highlighted that range from Moore’s discussion with an artist who also collects Black art to a top art school and residency also revealing their secrets to readers, helping build an understanding of the role they play in the growing art world.
“The Black Market” also features a collection of Moore’s essays based on his interactions with art collectors from all walks of life, like Ivy League graduates, college dropouts, all the way to single parents. To help catch a person new to art collecting up to speed, a glossary of common terms, a section on insurance, storage, and maintenance, round things up.
It’s clear to see how “The Black Market” could easily be regarded as essential to a person new to collecting black artwork, not only expanding their knowledge but also making their entrance into collection go much more smoothly.
The pre-sale for the exciting book launches in a couple of weeks, with “The Black Market: A Guide to Art Collection” expected to be ready to be delivered by the end of September or the beginning of October.
Charles Moore has published work on the subject of contemporary arts and related topics on Artnet, Artsy, and Cultured Magazine, and many other places. “The Black Market: A Guide to Art Collection” is his first book.
