A prophet at the very least…

There’s a lather of news around the arts traps as David Walsh sells Chris Ofili’s Holy Virgin for record readies (he’s building a new wing at MONA)…



But what hit the nail on the head for us was his statement regarding the de-accessioning…

“I’ve made my money gambling. And here, at this auction, I’m gambling again. My gamble isn’t that you will pay enough for these works to justify my selling. My wager is that the future, for me and my museum, is more rewarding than the past.”

Is this man the Arts messiah? We really think so!!
