Art in a poorer world

I saw this discussion on Jen Bradford's studio*blog and thought I'd share it here. A lot of good points are brought up, many of which artists and gallerists have probably already dealt with in one way or another over the years. For artist, weathering hard times is a given, no matter what.

There's little here that's really new; economy shrinks, artists keep working, some galleries close, others change marketing plans, big blockbuster museum shows get scaled down or axed altogether, etc.. However, considering the economic crap swirl we're in, its still good to have some kind of dialog about how the recession is affecting the art world today.

(*note* This video is just over an hour long. Below are some shortcuts to various topics brought up)
