OUR VSOCOLSKY SAYS ABOUT THE CONTEMPORARY ART CARTELS:

‘“The art market focuses attention on what its priorities are, which is big buying and big selling—so we wind up talking about Koons, Hirst, Murakami, the usual suspects. The big problem is figuring out how to focus attention in other directions. Everything has changed, and the art market is a big part of that.(…) people used to fight for their views. Now people look for the auction prices, and the prices are their argument.”

“Part of the challenge I see in trying to focus attention away from market-oriented art is figuring out how art that behaves like a commodity can be counteracted by artists. One way to do this is to create communities. Another way—and I think this is very, very important—is to create anti-market polemics.” (Irving Sandler, 87 year-old critic)

Rodrigo, you are doing just that: creating a community that can focus attention away from market-oriented art’
