Swamped with Research

My Summer Read

My current summer read is the book Seven Days in The Art World by Sarah Thornton. I must say it’s proving to be quite intriguing as I haven’t been able to put it down for long. It’s a very easy read that gives an inside view into some of the most significant events on the social art calender including ‘the auction’, ‘the crit’, ‘the fair’, ‘the prize’, ‘the magazine’, ‘the studio visit’, and ‘the biennale’. With insightful interviews with top leading artists, curators, dealers, collectors and critics, this book should be at the top of everyone’s reading list. Truly entertaining!
