From Dale Erickson: One of my grips is that SFMOMA is being run by board of directors who are heads of corporations interested in keeping the current status of the art market intact. There's a connection between the auction houses, galleries and museum which at times boarders on a conflict of interest. There interest is in keeping the prices up for the upper 1% of the 1% who do invest in blue chip art . This has nothing to do with art except money laundering, tax shelters and investment for the upper percentage of the population who want to put there money some place besides the market and real estate. The art market has no regulations aside from the fact that a work can not be a fake and even then I wonder? This is no big revelation it's just a fact of the commercial art market that we live in.
could you please tell, regarding the last photo, who did the sculpture and who is the subject? thank you.
