Art objects and Deflation
The dividend of beauty is hard to put a monetary value on. Pride of ownership aside, antiquities and tribal art is an excellent place to invest your money. It seems that the world needs to adjust to a new financial reality. A few months ago, inflation was a top worry, especially the impact of sky-high fuel prices, but now, although consumers can celebrate falling prices at the gas pump and sales on everyday items, an investors' worry is exactly the opposite. Instead of inflation, the problem is deflation, a downward drift in prices that squeeze profits and investor returns to uncomfortable levels.

New York, NY - 05/13/2010
NEW YORK CITY -- An intrepid tribe of tribal art dealers
are standing up to the recession and the cancellation of
2010’s traditional annual New York Tribal Antiques Show
at the Armory.
They created and coordinated a NYC Tribal Art Week,
May 11-16, allowing collectors, scholars, dealers, and
aficionados to get their needed visual --
and perhaps collecting – fix.
On display and for sale by about 30 dealers around
the Upper East Side and Midtown of New York City,
from now through this Sunday, is an arresting
array of authentic and stunning artworks of
Africa, Oceania, and The Americas,
including Pre-Columbian art.
Manhattan’s eight public walk-in tribal art galleries
and three auction houses are all participating,
as are 11 local private dealers, five European
dealers, and two tribal art dealers from the
West Coast. There will be about 20 venues
where fine tribal art can be viewed, free and
open to the public.
