The Birth of the Big, Beautiful Art Market
By: Dave Hickey
In this chapter of Air Guitar, Hickey talks about the art market in relation to other global and economic markets. He talks about cars and the way they consumed his life when younger. He talks about what he wants from his work and where artwork falls in line with the world it lives in. Pretty straightforward stuff. I think that this article is mainly here for us, as the reader and as an artist, to think about how we and our work fall into the art market and to get an idea of the differences between the market for today’s art and work that was make back in the day.
