Long Live the Butterflies
Damien Hirst sounds like such a jerk. He’s bypassing the dealer and gallery system this week and selling a body of work directly through Sotheby’s. What is this, Ebay? On top of it all, he’s claiming this kind of selling scheme will liberate the working artist from a blood-sucking system of intermediaries. Empowering the artist, Damien, or your ego?
I don’t have time for this shit.
