“Given the entrenched position of galleries in the art market, it’s hard to believe that fine art will go the way of music books anytime soon. The value of a work still depends, in large part, on who represents it, who praises it, and even who owns it. The mere access to fine art is still linked to power and status in a way that other cultural products are not.”
