Art and Money

In a period of radical expansion of public interest and market forces, what is the state of contemporary art’s production, presentation, and acquisition? What roles do narcissism and trophy-gathering play? Is the current boom another chapter in an older, modernist history, or is it truly unprecedented? How did contemporary art, of seemingly endless supply, become so dear? How did Ai Weiwei become more valuable than Tiepolo? The event is moderated by Tim Griffin, Editor of Artforum. Panelists include: Amy Cappellazzo, Co-Head, Christie’s Contemporary Art; Thomas Crow, Rosalie Solow Chair, Institute of Fine Arts, New York University; Jeffrey Deitch, Director, Deitch Projects; Kathy Halbreich, Associate Director, Museum of Modern Art; and Yinka Shonibare. This event was held by The New School.

    I doubt that our culture is as “visually sophisticated” as certain of the panelists–Deitch and Cappellazzo, the two most commercially oriented figures here–say it is. The internet is visual, yes, but it’s also very fast, as are television, billboard imagery, etc. Where does the art of painting, with its viscous materiality, fit in to this culture of visual fast food? Watching this video from early 2008 in 2011 makes the self-congratulating complacency of Deitch especially seem jarring.
