as we see it

ARTISTS make the ART sold by DEALERS to COLLECTORS who hang it in SPACES
For each of these complementary positions, whomever has the smart money behind them determines who survives.
There is, however, a whole lot more to the art business than money.
There is gossip, for instance!

The Artists are

HOT & SEXY meaning industrious, charismatic, connected, and creative, with a timely POV.
NOW & POETIC meaning diligent, focussed, with talent for expressing a sustaining POV.
HOKUM implying a derivative, skill based talent with a commercial intent.
OUT of the loop offering only ignorance in action, as ever doing its own thing.

In The Art World, Who Is Important?      Why These Artists?      Why These Dealers?      How Do They Connect?      Who Can Do It?      What Constitutes an Important Work by a Significant Career?


The ART may be Fine & Sublime, Fun & POP, Filler 'n' Fluff, or Flotsam & Stuff....

The DEALERS are Dreamers, Screamers, Schemers, or Reamers....

The COLLECTORS are Patrons, Speculators, Curators, or Pack Rats....

The SPACES can Resonate, Compete, Exploit....
