Sarah Thornton – Top 10 reasons NOT to write about the art market

Canadian name-brand art reporter, Sarah Thornton, has pulled a Greg Smith, today, penning a screed for TAR Magazine entitled “Top 10 reasons NOT to write about the art market.” In it, the “Seven Days in the Art World” author concludes that the subject is too corrupt to report on and therefore she will shift away from this kind of journalism. Among her complaints: art market coverage gives “too much exposure to artists who attain high prices,” and “the most interesting stories are libelous.” Also — and this is our favorite — “The pay is appalling,” she writes.
