THE BAER FAXT
The art world’s most trusted source of breaking news,
insider intelligence and art market insights since 1994
WHAT IS THE BAER FAXT?
“Shortly after opening my gallery 20 years ago, Josh approached me with his idea for The Baer Faxt – I think I was one of the first to sign up, and of course in those days it was still an actual “fax”. Since then I don’t think I’ve missed many, and The Baer Faxt has been our consistently reliable, must-read source for news, analysis, and up-to-the-minute auction reports.”
“I love The Baer Faxt. Especially when I am not a part of the piece.”
“The best way to become a player in the art world is to be an underbidder on a major work of art [at auction]. You don’t have to spend any money. Just raise your hand near one of the top bids on a Warhol or another major lot and Josh will list you in The Baer Faxt among the underbidders.”
“Weekly news, I never miss it. Always matter of fact, interesting questions and invaluable source of information.”
“When I see The Baer Faxt in my inbox, I immediately click to open what I know will be a brief but interesting show in the art about the art world’s comings and goings.”
“The Baer Faxt is the most dependable, transparent and timely source of news about the Art Market. It’s greatest advantage is its willingness to challenge the presumed and politically-correct by presenting questions that challenge the obvious and hackneyed.”

“Josh Baer is the industry leader and everyday more globally known. The Baer Faxt is a must-have for anyone in and outside of the art business.”

“When Josh did an open call for climate support, suggesting galleries donate in lieu of hosting Art Basel dinners, we [Art for Acres] received a donation of six figures within a week from a well-known gallery inspired by his words. Our ad in The Baer Faxt also tripled the foot traffic for our show and the gallery extended the show two weeks.”

The art market is notoriously opaque.
