Boom: An Art-World Evening with Michael Shnayerson
Friday, January 24
The contemporary art market is an international juggernaut, throwing off multimillion-dollar deals as wealthy buyers move from fair to fair, auction to auction, party to glittering party. But none of it would happen without the dealers and mega dealers: tastemakers who back emerging artists and then steer them to success. Michael Shnayerson, longtime Vanity Fair contributing editor, has interviewed all of today’s so-called mega dealers, Larry Gagosian, David Zwirner, Arne and Marc Glimcher, and Iwan Wirth, as well as many other global art-world movers and shakers. His gripping new book Boom is the first definitive history of art dealing in our time.
