Current AIAM100 Index
The AIAM100 Index gives an indication of the general health of the industry, which is currently down 20% on average since 2000.
What is ‘The AIAM100’?
The AIAM100 is an index that measures the health of the Australian indigenous art market. The index is calculated at the end of each year using sales at public auction as listed by the Australian Art Sales Digest. The records of the 100 most successful artists are added together to create the AIAM100 market index. This gives both an annual result for the art market as a whole and updates each individual artist's yearly and career ranking. This provides a numerical list of the most important artists of the entire movement. Detailed profiles, market analysis and performance indicators are provided for each artist along with the artworks that have achieved their ten highest results at auction.
The AIAM100 provides professional advice on the Indigenous art market thereby serving the interests of artists, galleries and collectors.
