Artprice, a ServerÂ® Group company and Internet pioneer since 1985 in Europe, and CisionÂ® have announced a newswire distribution partnership, the companies said.
The partnership makes Cision the official news and content distributor for a world provider of art market information.
The strategic partnership designates Cision as the distribution service provider for Artprice information on art market trends for today´s worldwide principal media agencies including approximately 7,200 international press publications. The deal is a direct result of a long-standing relationship spanning two decades between Artprice and Cision, two strong leaders in their respective markets.
Artprice is a global provider of art price and art index databanks. It has over 30 million indices and auction results. Artprice ImagesÂ® gives unlimited access to the largest Art Market resource in the world: a library of 126 million images or prints of artworks from the year 1700 to the present day, along with comments by Artprice´s art historians.
Cision stood out amongst competitors for partnership due to exceptional customer service and providing a newswire service unique in terms of diffusion and content. Global distribution was key for Artprice with a specific focus in France, Europe and China — where it is associated with the Chinese provider of the Art Market, its solid institutional partner Artron.net — to solidify its footprint in the international art market. The partnership will expand upon Artprice´s global reach and impact as its Museum IndustryÂ®, a global program supporting the expansion of museum openings, is now active across five continents.
