The ‘artist’ is the central figure within the research outputs of Art Addict - whether we are considering the evaluation of contemporary art, finance of the art world or the commercial art market it is always considered from the artist’s perspective. It is the talent of the artist that sustains the art world and therefore we feel that it is of critical importance to always make these agents the focus when researching the arts. Currently Art Addict are working on a number of articles and publications, one such project is the construction of a monograph that plots the artist’s position within the high-end contemporary art market (other than as producer).

Lectures and talks are also a key part of disseminating the findings from our research. Dr Jack Roberts (Art Addict’s Director) regularly lectures on the topic of the artists in the art market at UK universities and institutions most - recently, for example, at Sotheby’s Institute of Art London.
