Butterflies are free
We talked about this in seminar today, but the reality of the situation is pretty depressing. To be a "successful artist"(if monitary compensation and being the new hot thing is how you define success) is really about the networking game. A lot of mediocre artists make more money than ridiculously talented artists simply based on who they know and it sucks. Yeah, going to Yale for an MFA would be amazing and getting solo shows in Chelsea would be mindblowing, but I'm not sure how I want to define success. How do you become an art dealer?
