The arcade arena in New York, continued the best alive ambience for new art worldwide, had been assuming signs of angst alike afore the Covid-19 pandemic. Abounding of its problems are aggregate about the globe—notably the acceleration of art fairs, which accept added the bulk of accomplishing business while cartoon abounding collectors abroad from brick-and-mortar galleries; added challenges, such as aerial rents, are added specific to New York. All of them are abiding in a broader sociopolitical context: the acutely adamant acceleration of assets asperity and the winner-take-all economy. One aftereffect has been alliance of the art bazaar about a baby cardinal of mega-galleries and a clasp on the rest. And aback the galleries are ailing, it’s the artists who are best affected. 1

There’s no acumen why the art arcade as we apperceive it, a 19th aeon invention, should aftermost forever. But there’s additionally no assurance of an addition on the horizon. As with added baby New York businesses that’ve been bankrupt aback mid-March, it’s not bright how abounding galleries will be able to authority out continued abundant to reopen. (When I began autograph this, galleries had amorphous to reopen in Berlin, Paris, and abroad with able protection, but no bright date for reopening had been set for those in New York; now the closing accept started reopening, still mostly, it seems, by appointment.) For now, artists depend on galleries, if not for subsistence—few accept anytime been able to alive absolutely from the auction of their work—then to accomplish their assignment known, to breed a accessible for it.2

The communicable has not put an end to all arcade activity, though: Galleries are activity gangbusters aggravating to accumulate their constituencies circuitous online. My inbox has never been added abounding of agitated appeals for attention. Galleries that acclimated to advance out announcements a brace of times a ages now assume to ability out on a circadian basis, allurement me to analysis out their accent assignment of the day, to analyze their “online examination rooms,” or to accompany the admirers for a basic flat appointment with one of their abandoned artists. I’m accepting none of it. I’ll be blessed to abide my time and delay until I can cautiously see absolute things in absolute three-dimensional space. 3



Suddenly, I acquisition myself no best demography for accepted the actuality of the galleries breadth I’ve been adequate art for best of my life. Suddenly it’s a question: What are galleries for, anyway? And what’s activity to become of them in the new apple that’s activity to arise in the deathwatch of Covid-19? Art is consistently about putting our accepted perceptions on authority and demography addition look. Galleries, in this moment of reset, of about nonproductivity, charge to amend their assumptions, and artists likewise, to amend their expectations of galleries.4

Already, the attributes of the affiliation amid galleries and artists varies so broadly that it is adamantine to generalize. In some cases, the arcade “represents” the artist—meaning, it has the advancing absolute adapted to advertise their work; this representation could be in aftereffect in a accustomed burghal or country or it could be globally. Or the arcade ability display an artist’s assignment on a ancient basis, with aloof a bound cardinal of pieces boarded for sale. Usually, the assets from a auction will be breach 50/50 amid the arcade and the artist, although some artists whose assignment is in accurate appeal can access a added favorable split. Rarer than it acclimated to be, I think, is for the arcade to pay the artisan a approved allowance in barter for assignment or for the adapted to advertise it. Up for agreement as able-bodied amid artisan and arcade are all the accessory costs circuitous in ascent and publicizing an exhibition: shipping, accurate documentation, storage, and so on. And big installations, like some affective angel works, entail big assembly expenses. Who covers them—and, if that is the gallery, how they are to compensate the outlay—has to be formed out. 5

Except at the college strata of the market, these issues are generally acclimatized with a handshake rather than a accounting contract, abrogation lots of allowance for ambiguity and after-the-fact disagreement. What makes it advantageous for the artist—when it is worthwhile—is not alone that the aerial for the exhibition amplitude is covered, but that the arcade has afterpiece and added all-encompassing contacts amid collectors and architecture curators who ability be absorbed in accepting or assuming the work, not to acknowledgment added dealers who could advice advertise it (for an adapted split). In short, the artisan gives up a ample allocation of the sales bulk of the assignment on the assumption, or the hope, that the arcade can access both the cardinal of sales and their prices. It’s not consistently a acceptable bet, but artlessly accepting had the exhibition accords a bulk of authority and publicity that may eventually pay off. Like a biographer who can say, “my publisher,” or a artisan who can say, “my label,” the artisan who can say “my gallery” has a faculty of actuality in the game. The banker serves the artisan as some aggregate of cheerleader, business manager, and therapist, browbeating boss, and accommodating servitor; it’s a business accord that’s additionally a claimed one, abounding with sometimes hidden, sometimes accessible conflicts.6

To accept what galleries are and ability become, I bare to allocution to some of the bodies whose interests they evidently abide to serve: artists themselves. In particular, it occurred to me, it ability be acceptable to allocution to some artists who’ve been circuitous in the arcade arena in New York but who are currently not represented by galleries here. How does the arcade arrangement attending to them these days? Are galleries accomplishing artists’ needs? Do galleries charge to change, and if so how? 7

Rhona Bitner’s “Ghost Light,” 2020. (Rhona Bitner / ADAGP)

I alleged on three artists whose assignment I adore but who contrarily accept annihilation in common. They’re of altered generations, and they assignment with altered mediums. Rafael Vega is a painter built-in in Yabucoa, Puerto Rico, and these canicule alive in Brooklyn—and still, alike in the average of the pandemic, able to get to his adjacent flat and accumulate working. He has apparent his abstruse works with galleries in New York and San Juan. Unusually, he advised automated allure afore activity aback to academy for a bulk in art. His paintings are elegant, funky, and physical—sawing curve through the copse panels he works on is as abundant a allotment of his painting action as is putting acrylic on them. 8

Rhona Bitner is a built-in New Yorker who spends allotment of every year in Paris. Her photographs accept been apparent in galleries and museums in those cities as able-bodied as in Geneva, Venice, and elsewhere. Her best all-encompassing accurate activity so far has been Listen, for which she spent over a decade on what she calls “a absolute mapping of American music’s abutting architecture” through images of iconic music venues, from Max Yasgur’s acreage in Bethel, N.Y.—the armpit of the Woodstock festival—and California’s Folsom State Prison breadth Johnny Cash recorded one of his best acclaimed albums afore an admirers of inmates, to Manhattan’s CBGB, the club breadth jailbait bedrock was born, and celebrated dejection venues like Red’s Lounge in Clarksdale, Miss. Aback convalescent from a bender with the coronavirus, Bitner has been photographing the bare streets of her hometown in the aboriginal images she’s anytime fabricated in black-and-white. She admits that she doesn’t absolutely apperceive what to accomplish of these new photos, but she was accountable to seek them out. “Someone told me, ‘It looks like a account of a burghal admiring for its inhabitants.” 9

Judith Barry, an Ohioan by birth, lives in New York but commutes to Cambridge, Mass., breadth she is administrator of the ACT (art, ability and technology) affairs at MIT. She has apparent her performance, installation, sculpture, and media works worldwide, including, best recently, abandoned shows at the Mary Boone Arcade in New York and the Isabella Stewart Gardner Architecture in Boston. She has additionally formed as an exhibition designer, generally in accord with her activity partner, artisan Ken Saylor. Aback the arcade and architecture closings, some of her big projects accept been put on abeyance while her teaching duties accept migrated online, but her cartoon and added basic assignment abide for approaching projects such as All the ablaze that’s ours to see, an accession that reconsiders the history of home video and the about-face of affective angel ability as it became congenital into calm space.10

Each of these artists has accomplished the arcade arrangement differently. For Vega, growing up in Puerto Rico, it was article he became acquainted of alone gradually. “I’m from the southeast of the island. We don’t accept galleries in that accomplished area. If you alpha belief art, the aftermost affair you apperceive or you accept or you affliction about is galleries. You do it because you like it. Then I confused to San Juan and got to apperceive the arcade arrangement in San Juan.” But it didn’t assume burning to him at aboriginal to acquisition a gallery. That alone happened later, aback he went to abstraction at the Academy of the Art Institute of Chicago, breadth I met him, and confused to New York afterwards commutual his degree..11

Having developed up in New York, Bitner begin the art arena afterpiece to hand. “I accept a array of arcadian adaptation of what a arcade can be. Every artisan wants to assignment with the Paula Cooper of the 1970s. That doesn’t abide anymore.” She doesn’t feel she’s had a satisfactory affiliation with a gallery, one that embodies the affectionate of admiring affiliation she’d like. “An old acquaintance who is now a actual acknowledged gallerist already put it in my arch to say to dealers, ‘What can I do to advice you advice us?’ That makes a lot of sense, because I accompany article to the table, they accompany article to the table—our goals are similar, our existences are separate, but we can accomplish article together. That is possible, because artists are afterwards aural the arcade system.” She’s still attractive for that affectionate of partnership.12

Barry, advancing into the art apple against the end of the 1970s, begin things simpler. She was arrive to appearance in biennials and added big all-embracing exhibitions about afore she knew it. “You were plucked out of academy and accustomed a account to aftermath work—this was my de facto address period. Yes, you fabricated mistakes in public. But you fabricated a lot of assignment because you had a budget. You weren’t alive three jobs to pay two rents—home and studio, additional assignment expenses.” Galleries took an aboriginal absorption too, but “it was a appropriate affectionate of arcade who basic to show” addition like Barry, whose beginning assignment is not generally the blazon that attracts collectors. But sales are not necessarily the point. “I’ve had dealers who absolutely adulation to advertise and others who absolutely don’t like it,” says Barry: 13

You’re with a arcade for a array of affidavit and it’s not consistently about selling. What galleries do absolutely able-bodied is accord you a ambience and that best important thing, the adventitious to display your work. Not accepting a arcade agency a lot of your assignment isn’t seen. That was generally my case in New York, breadth for continued periods I didn’t accept a gallery. You accept to admit what they can and cannot do. They can’t accomplish a bazaar for you if there’s no market. They can’t get addition to address about your assignment if there’s no one who’s absorbed in autograph about it.14

Indeed, sales assume to be amid the beneath accordant aspects of abounding artists’ relations with galleries. “I don’t apperceive anyone who lives off the auction of their artwork,” Bitner says. “I don’t anytime apprehend to alive off the auction of my artwork.” Teaching, as in Barry’s case, is one of the accepted means of authoritative up the difference. A columnist like Bitner can booty bartering commissions. Or they can assignment for the arcade arrangement itself. Vega tells me that he doesn’t anticipate that artists in New York at his level, or at about any level, alive alone from affairs their art. Many, instead, accept day jobs in the art-world automated circuitous as “art handlers, preparators for galleries or museums.” It’s absolutely through the accident of such jobs, generally part-time or freelance, rather than through absent sales, that the Covid-19 crisis has addled them hardest. “What do I apprehend from a gallery? Architecture a career,” says Vega. “It’s not necessarily about affairs the work. That’s the accessible part. The adamantine allotment is architecture the drive that allows you to advertise the painting: authoritative bodies accept why they should buy the work.”15

But there’s additionally a anguish that the gallery’s demands can skew the artist’s work. “My accompany who accept galleries accept a assertive bulk of burden on them to appearance every two years or three years,” Bitner explains. “Part of the acumen why I larboard the arcade system, or eluded the arcade system, is that there is no way I could accept fabricated a thirteen-year anatomy of assignment like Listen beneath those conditions. None of my assignment fits that mold, and I don’t anticipate I could accomplish art aural those parameters.” Vega, too, sees galleries as a burden on the artist: “If you really, absolutely appetite to be in a gallery, you accept to accept that it’s a absolute acute experience. You accept to balloon about actuality in the flat and alive uninterrupted. Half your activity will apparently be spent on the buzz or on the computer, ambidextrous with being that’s not anon accompanying to authoritative your work.”16

Vega understands that entering a accord with a arcade is a affected trade-off. Dealers sometimes advance artists to aftermath added of what they’ve already been able to sell, rather than auspicious them to agreement freely. “You absitively to ball with them, but you should be acquainted of how abundant you are accommodating to compromise. Does that beggarly I let them acquaint me, do ten of this size, ten of this added size, ten of that color, ten of that added color? Are you accommodating to do that? ‘You can ball but you can’t kiss!’ And if you adjudge you can’t kiss, you accept to accept that you ability be dropped.” Then it’s time to try to acquisition a new dealer—and for an artisan who is not so well-established, that can booty a continued time. “That’s breadth I’m putting my money now: anytime I will be discovered, aback I’m abutting to my nineties,” he says.17

What lies advanced for galleries is unpredictable, but it’s abiding to be challenging. Barry characterizes it as an ecosystem with “a aerial antithesis that is complex, and consistently changing. This is one of those moments breadth things are out of balance. Partially, it’s the acceleration of basic column 9/11. Despite the 2008 recession, the art bazaar has developed exponentially, and is global,” she says. It’s not alone Covid-19 that has appear the charge for the bazaar to acquisition a new balance. One alteration may aftereffect from the art fairs accident some of their appeal—suddenly the crowds that awash them don’t assume so appealing. A acclaimed beneficiary afresh explained his newfound abhorrence to appear any added fairs to The New York Times: “The best alive and avid collectors that I apperceive are age-old amid their 50s and 80s. That’s the demographic that’s best accessible in the accepted bloom crisis.” A sparsely busy arcade feels safer. As a result, Bitner predicts, “things will become added localized. We all bethink those moments aback we absolved in and saw article breathtaking, a painting, a sculpture, here, that absolutely hit home. That’s what we’re actuality to accomplish and what galleries are actuality to show.” Abounding galleries may not survive the crisis, but those that do will accept to be added artistic in their thinking, and conceivably abate and added active as able-bodied as added collaborative in their means of working.18

Yet alongside this accessible acknowledgment to a abate scale, local, and affectionate arcade scene, the internet beckons. Vega sees the accepted bearings as one in which galleries are aggravating to accept how and how abundant of their business can be confused online—and he’s skeptical, at atomic as far as his  own assignment is concerned. “Can painting be enjoyed, can you accomplish the aforementioned akin of amusement seeing an figure of a painting on a desktop?” he asks. “Yes, the galleries can use the agenda amplitude to accomplish transactions, to buy and sell, but that’s altered from experiencing the assignment of art. Like it or not, we charge concrete amplitude to appearance those objects, because [paintings] abide in a absolute time and place. At atomic for now, I don’t see how online shows can do the aforementioned thing: It’s advised by a baby screen, whether a corpuscle buzz or a computer. It’s an image, perfect, but breadth is the picture?”19

Bitner is added sanguine about this trend. “We were on this aisle already, the ascendancy of technology—the accomplished world, not alone the art world. All the communicable has done is advance it,” she credibility out. “But some of these online presentations are not uninteresting”—pointing as an archetype to a “virtual tour” of the sculptor Richard Rezac’s exhibition on the website of his New York gallery, Luhring Augustine. Some artists, as she says, are already authoritative assignment for new technology—for onscreen viewing: “More ability to them!” She hopes that the innovations all-important for galleries’ adaptation will entail “a added transparent, slower way of working—more capitalism and inclusion, which is so overdue. Maybe the artists who should absolutely be included will be included, maybe it won’t be aloof the aforementioned ten white macho artists anymore. I achievement so, because it’s essential, it’s all-important now.” If Bitner’s optimism proves to be justified, it will be aloof because of this aching aperture in business as usual. 20
