In Dan Duray’s story for The Art Newspaper on the developing market for Sherrie Levine’s work, there’s a bit of a buried lede (the big news that comes late in a story and, for many, is seen as bigger news than the headline and lead paragraph (or lede in journo-speak.)
Duray, who previously wrote a profile of Christie’s Loic Gouzer, says that the Contemporary art specialist is thinking of organizing another special sale.
Loic Gouzer, the deputy chairman of post-war and contemporary art at Christie’s, has made a name for himself organising sales of undervalued or up-and-coming artists and says that he is thinking of doing another this spring.
Levine, he says, is one that he is considering for it, especially with the relatively modest auction results seen last month and in autumn last year. “We are going back to collectors rather than buyers,” Gouzer says, “collectors” being the more thoughtful people who might be interested in Levine’s work.
Is now the time for Sherrie Levine’s market to take off? (The Art Newspaper)
