Art quote of the day: Hundreds of artists battle alone

Black Red Green by M.K. Hajdin

Detail of Black, Red, Green by M.K. Hajdin

Hundreds of artists still battle alone in studios to make authentic work that does not need a curator to explain it. Where are they?

Here I am.  Hi there.

Quote is from this excellent piece in the FT Times, which you should go read right now.

From Rollo Contemporary Art gallery. Here’s what their website says about the gallery itself:

ROLLO Contemporary Art is a commercial gallery located in London W1, which was re-launched in 2008 by Philippa Found. Although a small exhibition space, the gallery has become internationally renowned for its influential critically engaged curated exhibitions. The programme is singular amongst commercial galleries for its focus on women artists and a driving concern to redress the under-representation of women artists. A central philosophy of the gallery is to bring theoretically engaged exhibitions to the commercial gallery space, by reviewing themes in current art practice and dedicating solo exhibitions to significant contemporary artists.

The first person to get annoyed isn’t necessarily the one who’s wrong; sometimes it’s just the one who’s got a clue.
