Interesting Critique of Art Fair Sales by New York Dealer

If you are more than represented, if you are an artist who sells well with a gallery that is involved with art fairs or is about to get involved in art fairs, read this article from The Art Newspaper:

The New York dealer, Nicole Klagsbrun, will close her gallery this summer. “I’m not sick and I’m not broke. I just don’t want the gallery system anymore,” Klagsbrun says. “The old school way was to be close to the artists and to the studios. Nowadays, it’s run like a corporation. After 30 years, this is not what I aspire to do. It is uninteresting.”
