ARTINFO has reported on the new retail outlet of gallery mogul Larry Gagosian..
“The sleek, 2,500-square-foot, bi-level space, which opened to the public this past weekend, also inaugurates London import (and Gagosian artist) Damien Hirst’s publishing company and retail shop Other Criteria on the lower level, making for a kind of casual art emporium with a fancy ZIP code.” ArtInfo
I’m not against making money from art, but I can’t help thinking some of the super-famous art dealers and artists are taking advantage of poor rich folk. At the end of the day though, it’s a reflection of society rather than the gallery or artist. People love stuff, especially expensive stuff that can make them feel a part of the cool club. So, I’m sure the Gagosian retail store will be a great success.
