The Chelsea landscape
Thanks to the anonymous dealer who forwarded us the following cold call to their gallery.
To Whom It May Concern:
I am representing an aspiring artist, and I would like to know how much it would cost to exhibit several pieces of work into your gallery. Please write back.
Unless you’re Damien Hirst, artists don’t need handlers. Not to state the obvious, but those who confuse commercial and vanity galleries are especially useless. Thankfully for this artist, L.G. did not attach their work, though their email provider attaches spammy ads to the end of each message. If your email does this, consider switching.
