Back to Executive Education


Sotheby’s Institute of Art offers a multi-city bilingual executive education curriculum for private collectors and art professionals who wish to strengthen their knowledge of art, collecting strategies and arts management. Each module of the Global Art Markets, Collecting and Connoisseurship program consists of intensive week-long residencies in major art centres around the world. The program highlights key aspects of the art market and provides participants with invaluable insight, understanding of artistic and market trends, and legal frameworks within the context of each global marketplace. Lectures and guided visits are led by leading faculty and experts in the field, and each module provides a hands-on experience and an exposure to the inner-workings of the market as well as knowledge of art, and professional networks. In addition, the Executive Program offers privileged access to some of the world’s finest collections and works of art, private visits to studios, galleries and other institutions that define much of the art scene today. Alongside top practitioners in the field, participants can gain a deep understanding of the art world in each city visited.

This module introduces the history of Chinese painting over the centuries and the recent extraordinary growth and development of the Chinese art market. With access to some of the world’s most important Chinese paintings in major public and private collections, participants can enhance their knowledge of history of Chinese art. The program also engages participants with art market specialists and key players to further understand the market trend of 20th century Modern and contemporary art as well as the current artistic practice in East Asia. This module is aligned with Sotheby’s Hong Kong Fall 2017 Sale preview exhibition which will take place in Taipei.
