Food for thought from Manya Scheps – sell your art y’all

sponsored

Manya’s article about the art market in the PW today strikes a chord with us. Young artists in Philadelphia need to learn to sell their art. That’s part of the equation in growing a collector base. If the art’s not for sale, how can anyone collect it? How can we all move forward? Performance artists, you can sell your work. Figure out a price and how to display some performance memorabilia and market it. If Rirkrit Tiravanija can sell a pot of mussel shells that was part of a cooking performance, you can surely figure out a piece of your performance, put a reasonable price on it and sell it.  Video artists, you can sell videos for sure. Makers of ephemeral effluvia…price it! If Richard Tuttle could sell sticks of styrofoam leaning against a wall with some tape, paper and string…well you can sell your works not meant to last 100 years, too. Read Manya’s story.
