Hi friends! Please join Occupy Museums for a discussion this Friday, October 19, 7-9PM. Part three of the four-part series of discussions on art and the marketplace at Momenta Art.

Value: Who decides?

 

It is said that art represents our cultural heritage, our common legacy. Does it?

 

What value is shared when art objects become markers of class hierarchy and easily manipulated commodities, screened by auction-house connoisseurs and turned into “tangible assets” as they enter the secondary market?

 

But how can we value art apart from this model?

 

How might this value system work?
