The concept of art market cannot be reduced to a speculative aspect. The current crisis involves a small minority of artists and speculators, it does not affect neither the desire nor the demand for art coming from people. A lot of artists sells their work outside galleries and auctions. But those who sell the most expensive are the most well-known, so they have a responsibility to the contemporary imagination and the collective consciousness. Indeed, the artist now has the conceptual and materials tools to create for his family as much as for all of humanity.
