‘The Elephant in the Room Is the Mega-Galleries’: Dealer Stefania Bortolami on How the Art Business Changed in 2019, and Where It’s Headed

When I met Stefania Bortolami at her eponymous Tribeca gallery earlier this November, she was midway through overseeing the installation of her latest exhibition, a solo show of new paintings by the New York-based artist Robert Bordo.

‘We Had to Do It For Ourselves’: Legendary Gallerist and Artist Suzanne Jackson on Why the Art World Has Never Gotten Her Story Right

Suzanne Jackson never vanished, or, as some people have suggested, ran off to Africa to get married. Instead, the artist and gallerist—who ran a short-lived space in Los Angeles in the late ‘60s that offered early shows to artists including Betye Saar and David Hammons—has been in Georgia. For the past 27 years, she has been teaching students at the Savannah College of Arts and Design and filling up her studio with more and more of her art.

It was new money versus old: Ethel and Robert Scull’s money came from a fleet of taxis in the Bronx, Emily and Burton Tremaine’s from inheritances and General Electric.

Phillips evening sale of 20th-century and contemporary art tonight took in just over $108 million. That total was a healthy margin above the low $93 million estimate, but well under the upper end of expectations of $132 million in a night marked by consistent and solid—but rarely heated—bidding. Of 42 lots offered, the sale saw a robust sell through rate of 95 percent by lot (40 works sold) and 98 percent by value.

A Record-Breaking Ed Ruscha Word Painting Propels Christie’s to a Steady, If Not Ebullient $325 Million Contemporary Auction

Christie’s put the full force of its marketing department behind a coveted Ed Ruscha word painting this fall, and the effort paid off handsomely. Hurting the Word Radio #2 (1964) soared to an above-estimate $52.5 million, which Christie’s chairman of postwar and contemporary art Alex Rotter framed as a rejoinder to art-market pessimists. “We wanted to prove we could sell a painting over $50 million this season,” he said.
