Leo Castelli. Angel or Devil! Did he render all art irrelevant or make art more relevant!! His proteges rule the art today! Larry Gagosian, Mary Boone, Tony Shafrazi. To name a few. He discovered Jasper Johns and became the champion to HIS heroes the likes of Warhol, Rauschenberg, Lichtenseina and Twombly.
Masters of twentieth century art!?!?!?
As interesting as men like Castelli were did they make the right choices were they the ones to really take control. Are artists today struggling against the tide these “Art Dealers created to be relevant or to be accepted by these TASTEMAKERS!!!??? This will be the thrust of my blog for the foreseeable future!
