    Hi. I wanted to drop you a quick note to express my thanks. I’ve been following your blog for a month or so and have picked up a ton of good information as well as enjoyed the way you’ve structured your site.

    SUSAN SCHWALB sent this comment (which, in a coinobatmin of dilated pupil from the eye doc and using an iPhone, I mistakenly rejected): “I am having trouble feeling sorry for these dealers and curators and their rejections. For every nice person there are dozens who are rude or worse to artists, particularly dealers. It certainly doesn’t make me feel better to know that dealers are also hurting in this economy, just unhappy that the market is so terrible. The artists who have built big PR machines and are showing dots all over the world are doing fine, but serious art and artists are struggling. And curators and dealers are sometimes part of the problem- looking for the next big thing that will titillate the press and collectors. On the other hand, a dealer who I used to work with who had to get out of the business and take a day job in fundraising was delighted when I bought her a coffee. It certainly isn’t easy out there.”

    Samuel Keller (director of Art Basel since 2000)- “If you go after art and quality, the money will come later…We have to make the same dicnseois as the artists. Do they create great art or art that sells well? With the galleries it’s the same. Are they commercial or do they believe in something? We’re in a similar situation”. I feel like this debate of whether art is created for the pure passion of art making or for business purposes has been brought up a lot in this class. When I read what Keller stated above, it got me thinking more about the argument in a different spectrum. This is now from the point of view of a director, rather than the artist themselves. In order for them to sell the work, it must be work that others will buy. What is one to do; pick work that appears to be “great work” or pick the work that maybe they do not connect with, but sells. It all has to do with the ultimate goal. Is it purely for business purposes or is it for the passion of loving art and celebrating the aesthetics of something that may not sell as well due to things such as size or medium. It is an ongoing debate, artists and people in the art world will continue to argue which one is more valid. As for me, I have been to countless art fairs, all of which I love and appreciate. If I find that I do not connect with the art on a personal level, I can still value it solely for the fact of being art, and for its artistic process. It also allows me to learn and grow as an artist myself, to find positive and negative aspects of a piece of art.
