I wrote a piece for The Art Newspaper on what Brexit might mean for both the arts and the art market in the UK, at least in the short term.

Update - Colin Gleadell in the Telegraph has more on how Brexit might affect the art market. His conclusion:

Update II - a dealer writes:

I'm very low in the food chain but even boot fairs were dismal sellling spaces last weekend. The only thing that has gone up is gold prices so unless you have a stash somewhere, which I dont, we will all need to start scraping the leaf off picture frames in the future.
