To See or Not to See
There is a new era of contemporary art setting in India. The fall of the market will be the rise of young and fresh artists with newer concepts of individuality related to political, religious and social issues. They will question the system with their new philosophy and work by them, leaving no choice for the spectators.
Not only the artists, this will create a new breed of collectors who will show keen interest in the artist. Ask questions of the creative intention. Travel to their studio and see the artist at work.
Galleries will showcase and represent this new generation of artists with their new ideologies.
They will take these artists to the auction houses, who will encourage the investors to buy the art, make the artists stars, until they stagnates to one iconic style, becoming nothing but a production house.
The collectors will get greedy, the artists will be "satiated and content", the bubble will get bigger, and finally burst.
The collectors (investors) will get bored of the same works by the same artists. The system will get tired of the monotony. The artist will get frustrated. Everything will be dark and gray.
Finally, a new age of artists will emerge. They will change the system...............
