Antique Dealers Challenge Ivory Regulations

Antique trade groups in the US have proposed reforms to new rules that make it illegal to sell ivory objects that were imported before 1982. Antiques made in the US that contain ivory are also prohibited from being sold. Neither type of object qualifies for the “antique exemption”, which allows the trade of objects more than 100 years old.

Artvest Partners to Transform The Spring Show NYC

Artvest Partners, which is helmed by Michael Plummer and Jeff Rabin, Christie’s former Chief Operating Officer of Financial Services and Vice President of Financial Services, respectively, will transform The Spring Show NYC for its 2014 iteration. The goal of the fair’s redesign is to better serve the global collector community that gathers in New York each year to attend the various important spring auctions. Launched in 2011 by the Art & Antique Dealers League of America and produced by The Art Fair Company, the Spring Show NYC presents art and design from antiquity to the avant-garde.

Artvest will revamp the Spring Show NYC’s look and feel as well as bring new dealers on board for the show. Clinton Howell, President of the Art & Antique Dealers League, said, “After fielding requests from leading dealers from the around the globe who were looking for a suitable venue to exhibit their best works in New York during the Impressionist & Modern auction week, we realized that we needed to reconfigure the Spring Show NYC to accommodate this demand.”

The Spring Show NYC will take place at the Park Avenue Armory from April 30, 2014 to May 4, 2014.
