It’s the first episode of 2024 so we’re looking ahead at the next 12 months with art market predictions and a guide to the big exhibitions and biennials of the year.

Every year, we attempt to predict what might be on the horizon for the market, and this time, it is the turn of our acting art market editor Tim Schneider—who himself has long been looking into his crystal ball at the start of every year—to tell us what we might expect from the coming 12 months. He tells us about his five 2024 predictions.

Then, Jane Morris, one of our editors-at-large, Gareth Harris, our chief contributing editor, and host Ben Luke select the biennales and exhibitions that they are most looking forward to in 2024.
