Art F City Selects at NADA New York
From Jon Rafman’s 9 Eyes.
This would be a great way of shooting down a counterargument if every other example in the story wasn’t about billionaire male collectors who buy the most fashionable work possible.
“Where are the female Steve Cohens?” is basically the question she is asking. Try as one might to frame it that way, the answer has nothing to do with art collecting habits. It has a lot more to do with a lack of female billionaires with hundreds of millions of pocket change to throw around at Christie’s.
(Further, the examples of the sort of “underappreciated” collecting style mentioned above — Herb and Dorthy Vogel, and to a lesser extent Alice Walton — sort of torpedoes the whole “where are the female collectors” argument IMO.)
