Exhibition History Provides Important Insight
“You do not need to be a millionaire to access high quality but you do need to put a bit of time and effort into your own research or gaining access to some objective advice.”
Clare McAndrew, artseconomics.com
Studying an artist’s work, reading an art critic’s opinion, and looking at recent as well as older artwork to understand how perspectives and point of views do change is important.
All your findings and evaluations are based on the many exhibitions of artwork which take place around the world since many decades. An exhibition venue’s type, concept and vision contributes in an important if not fundamental way to the artist’s positioning – on the long way to perhaps showing after many years in a major museum or selling in a gallery or at an auction for a high price.
