Seven Days in the Art World – Sarah Thornton
Crooked, Straight, Angled, Fake, Laughable, Laudable. Well, Everything Except Laudable
‘They believe what they say in the moment they say it.’ And then the moment is gone, and someone’s stuck with a desiccated horse’s head or a painting of Jesus framed in piss. In this episode we learn about the high prices and low motives of the contemporary art world while schmoozing in Basel, getting lost in Venice, and, once or twice, encountering genius along the way. Going once, going twice, going three times . . . sold!
