Blogger Tom Moody takes a picture of the gallery/artist Reena Spaulings‘ buzzer, in the hopes of unlocking what some have named “the final mystery of the art world.” The final mystery of course being, why they are so famous.
Always on the prowl for the art worlders who made Hyperallergic’s list of the top 20 most powerless people in the art world, we snapped this picture yesterday of blogger Tom Moody, who snags their number 18 spot. Fullfilling their criteria for the position by non-ironically wearing Khakis at a lower east side gallery, Moody shoots the Reena Spaulings store front (a type written label underneath their buzzer). Coincidentally, while we where there, we learned what the most powerful people in the art world already know: Reena Spaulings is closed until December.
