The Future of Art Fairs Is in a Hotel on Hollywood Boulevard

 

A couple of snips..

As the art industry scrambles to find new fair models that let mid-tier galleries participate without driving them to bankruptcy with booth fees and travel costs, three prominent figures in the Los Angeles art scene—collector Dean Valentine and dealers Alberto and Mills Morán—proposed a radical idea. They would return to the hotel fair model, a throwback to the Gramercy International Art Fair held at the Chateau Marmont in L.A. in the 1990s, where booth prices could be kept low due minimal infrastructure-building costs. For dealers who are really hard-up for cash, they could always sleep in their booth—there’s an option to keep the bed in the room...

...And the cost for the hotel fair would be much lower. Booths at Frieze start at $8,277.50 for the smallest booth, a paltry 215 square feet. For a large booth, mega-galleries have to pay more than $75,000. Meanwhile, a gallery at Felix LA can get a booth for just $4,000, and the most expensive booth, at $10,000, is a small uptick from the low barrier at Frieze—but that fee gets you all 1,200 square feet of the hotel’s over-the-top Roosevelt Suite, more than five times the size of a small booth at Frieze.

Who would have thought galleries pay so much $$ for a booth at shows? They should boycott the greedy bastards that promote the shows. Oh wait...I guess they want to make $$. I forgot, everyone does not do as an underground'er like me would do.

 
 Fascinating article...

 


Desktop or Laptop?

What is your main computer...Desktop or Laptop?

 

I have an old desktop, but am thinking about going with laptop/s only. The laptops seem as durable as desktop when not abused. But maybe I've been lucky. 


Strand Books, NYC

If you have never been to Strand, give it a visit. Outstanding art and photo, cinema book sections as well as almost anything else you could want for books. 

 
 The son of the founder just died and his daughter is running it now. You never know how long these family affairs keep going. Her kids may not want to take it over, so I figured I better archive the Strand a little.
 
I visited the store before Xmas in Dec 2018. Spent about 1-1-/2 hours walking around. Shot 274 photos and just finished the first set. Still have lots more photos to look through.  
 
 
4 floors of books and they claim 18 miles of books including their warehouse. 4th floor has some great lectures and presentation as well. It is a fixture of NYC.
 
Here is photo of photographer Eggleston along with Steidl at the Strand.
