Episode 7 The Business of Art

After a three week break, Mark and I discuss the business of art, the way in which art is evaluated,  and everything we can think of around this subject.  We argue that collectors are central to the valuation of artwork and wonder if some artwork will hold up well in 200 years.  Will Mark pick up his paintbrush again? I do hope so. He's a good artist! It looks like I'll continue giving my paintings away for a while as I am not quite ready yet to enter the world of making art for money. Living the life of the Visual Artist interests me more right now. It's a good life.  Photo: Damien Hirst, The Physical Impossibility of Death in the Mind of Someone living, 1991.
