The auction house Sotheby’s would probably like you to just ignore Teamsters Local 814, their fight against the now eight-week long lockout of the union-affiliated art handlers, or the videos posted, like this one where protestors stormed a recent auction as part of the Occupy Wall Street demonstrations. Instead, they’d most likely prefer that you shift your attentions to this week’s launch of Your Art World, a four part series spread out with one per week, documenting all the parts that make up the Sotheby’s whole. Up first, and just launched yesterday, is “The Artist” episode, featuring conversations with the likes of Jeff Koons, Ronald Ventura, Cai Guo-Qiang and Amy Granat. Well shot and interesting (though Koons’ quiet voice is still vaguely creepy for some reason), it’s certainly worth a watch. Whether it makes you decide to ignore all that other business is up to you. Here’s a preview of the first episode:
