By Sarah Thornton
Must not be confused with 7 days in a week. But, rather an intensive period of at least 3 years of research and interviews. Culminating in 7 days described from these 3 years.
During these days Sarah Thornton partakes in an evening at "The Auction" held at the Christies's. A day at the "Crit" a collective student/teacher critique seminar at the California Institute of the Arts. "The Fair", describing a day of frenzy at the Art Basel. A day of the Turner Prize award "The Prize". "The Magazine" a day at the prestigious Art magazine Artforum. A "Studio Visit" with Takashi Murakami and finally a day in Venice at "The Biennale".
I laughed and I learned at the same time, while reading this thoroughly entertaining book about the industry. I thought she dared to be honest and at the same time respectful to the about 250 people she interviewed.
Loving the way she had a chance to write this book with such first hand knowledge from some of the most powerful people and events.
Recommending it to all my Art Lover Friends
