Research Coordinator, ERCC Research Unit, The University of Melbourne

Dr Anita Archer is Research Coordinator of the ERCC (Enlightenment, Romanticism, and Contemporary Culture) Research Unit at the University of Melbourne. She is an art historian whose research interest is global contemporary art markets, including the evolving domination of multinational auction houses and the networked activities of art world intermediaries including curators, collectors, dealers and critics. Anita's PhD thesis examined the emerging market for Chinese Contemporary Art in the West and her recent focus is the role of Singapore as an art market hub for Southeast Asia. Anita's research interest stems from her training at Sotheby's in London and her extensive work experience in the global art field as an international auctioneer and independent art consultant specialising in Asian contemporary art.
