this article has an obvious tip (follow the whitney biennial) with some data & insight. i also like this bit confirming that collecting can be for both love of art and money: "Don’t misread my crass commercial analysis as an indication that I think art and artists are simple commodities to be bought and sold. Art is not merely an investment. Collecting art seriously is about immersing oneself in the culture of one’s time. It’s about being part of the discussion of what it means to be alive. It’s about surrounding yourself with questions, beauty, ugliness and the ineffable. To collect art is to live a more complete and intellectually rich life." (well maybe)
Walter, please don't scream for attention. Keep your political or social views to your self.
We are here to discuss art, conduct yourself like a mature adult or join the children's table.
First of all vlcane,
It is you that is screaming for attention by trying to put me in my place on a message board. I simply stated my opinion of G. Zimmerman (not a member of this forum). There was nothing political about it. If you don't like my opinion, then move on. Theres plenty of member bashing on this forum that the majority of us choose to stay out of, including myself. Whether or not this guy painted the greatest piece of art in the history of mankind, I stand behind my OPINION that he is a piece of shit. I already have a father and don't need your "daddy sarcasm". If you read my previous posts, you will see that I AM here to discuss art, and I'm very passionate about it. But when an article such as this is presented to the board, you bet I'm going to express how I feel about it. Good day
