It’s time for another edition of The Artsy Podcast Extra: on-the-ground reporting from art-world events across the globe. This week, Deputy Editor Alexander Forbes calls in from China to break down his coverage of Shanghai-based art fair West Bund. What was it like to watch the U.S. presidential election results roll in from the other side of the world? How do attitudes towards collecting in Beijing and Shanghai compare to the West? And what can we expect from China’s art market as it continues to expand in the coming years?

Shanghai’s West Bund Fair Marks a Shift in World Power

This podcast is hosted by Artsy Associate Editor Isaac Kaplan, joined for this edition by Deputy Editor Alexander Forbes. It was produced by Editorial Associate Abigail Cain.
