Quote of Note | Adam Lindemann


Damien Hirst, who this month announced his defection from Gagosian Gallery, where he has been represented for 17 years.

“Through ‘loyalty,’ lethargy, apathy, or fear, the biggest-name artists have been willingly shackled to their heritage galleries–now that may be changing. I don’t believe this trend is specific to Gagosian. The very foundations of the ‘artist representation’ model are crumbling. Maybe all the top-selling artists will fire their galleries and form one big collective, then they can just set prices and cut out the dealers. I’d prefer it if they charged one price at the door and then a bingo machine randomly chose which artwork you got; that would make it fun again.”

-Collector, gallerist, and writer Adam Lindemann in “The Art World Game Changers of 2012,” published in the December 24-31 issue of The New York Observer
