Click to read this very funny list:
The 20 Most Powerless People in the Art World: 2011 Edition.
This is a hilarious and very timely list in response to the recent Art Review “Top 100 Most Powerful People in the Art World”
I am still trying to figure out what a “Pre-post-studio Mono-medium Artist” is.
I would add one more Most Powerless to this list:
21. Emerging artists who donate their art to local charities for “great exposure”
Yes, we have all done it, but it is time to stop. I stopped after I was asked to donate a painting of mine to a very expensive private school in town (my kids are in public school) for their annual auction. “It’s great exposure” the parent informed me, adding “these parents have a lot of money. Last year we made over $165,000 in one night!”
So if these people have so much money, why are they getting an unfairly low price for a great work of art, while we essentially support their private school? I might even call this one number one on the list.
