LINN | PRESS believes it is imperative to demonstrate our engagement in and knowledge of art history and art market economics. We are unique in the emphasis we place on scholarship and criticism. This is evidenced by the increasing numbers of catalogues and books that we have contributed to or written. In fact, in late 2016 we launched our own imprint, Burckhardt Boles publishing. Currently, Clayton is a primary advisor on a forthcoming book about the global contemporary art market.

From a critical perspective, we demonstrate our depth and breadth of knowledge by regular contributions to Arteviste.com, a London-based, contemporary art platform. Our portfolio of reviews, ranges from a critique of the most recent Whitney Biennial to reviews of museum exhibitions in Chicago and Paris, from assessments of mid-career exhibitions to insights into emerging, "must watch" artists.

We are often asked to participate in professional seminars and conferences about the modern and contemporary art markets and alternative investments. In addition to speaking at international art fairs, our audiences have included private bankers, investment managers, and family offices. We are also comment on the evolving art market for several major US and foreign business publications.
