The 20 Most Powerless People in the Art World: 2011 Edition

Click to read this very funny list:
The 20 Most Powerless People in the Art World: 2011 Edition.

This is a hilarious and very timely list in response to the recent Art Review  “Top 100 Most Powerful People in the Art World”

I am still trying to figure out what a “Pre-post-studio Mono-medium Artist” is.

I would add one more Most Powerless to this list:

21.  Emerging artists who donate their art to local charities for “great exposure”

Yes, we have all done it, but it is time to stop.  I stopped after I was asked to donate a painting of mine to a very expensive private school in town (my kids are in public school) for their annual auction.  “It’s great exposure” the parent informed me, adding “these parents have a lot of money.  Last year we made over $165,000 in one night!”

So if these people have so much money, why are they getting an unfairly low price for a great work of art, while we essentially support their private school?  I might even call this one number one on the list.
