This just in to tips: SVA will be the first art school to exhibit at the Miami Art Fairs (Aqua to be specific). Now there’s a press release that inspires so many questions it’s hard to know where to begin. Setting aside the obvious grossness of exploiting recent graduates by entering their work into the marketplace prematurely (four of whom hold BFAs only,) who’s paying for all this? What’s the profit split? And most importantly, since when did institutions start operating as though they were commercial enterprise?
