Seven Days in the Art World, Paperback

Seven Days in the Art World Paperback

3 out of 5 (1 rating)


Contemporary art has become a mass entertainment, a luxury good, a job description and, for some, a kind of alternative religion.

Sarah Thornton's shrewd and entertaining fly-on-the-wall narrative takes us behind the scenes of the art world, from art school to auction house, showing us how it works, and giving us a vivid sense of being there.

Review by

Good to read for sure. Thornton's style is entertaining... if you like gossips about the "high" art world... If like me, you had the chance to experience the everyday concerns of a "normal" gallery or do not live in New-York or London, you will feel like reading Cosmopolitan.Do not be mistaken though, I repeat, this book remains entertaining.
