How Do We Reform the Art World?

Charlie Finch has an interesting idea:

The auction houses should be required by law to tell us who bought what, but, more importantly, transparency would be in the best interests of the auction world because more people would get involved and it would be more fun!

Unfortunately, “fun” is the last thing that art world elitists are looking.

Read the whole article on Artnet, which is chock-full of other conflicts of interest that make the recent New Museum affair seem tame by comparison.
