In part two of this final conversation from their Temporary Art Center residency, Joe and Matthew continue their discussion with art collector and arts benefactor Tim Schrager.
An anecdote from a studio visit with artist Tom Sachs illustrates the connection between the art object and its meaning to the collector. Commissions and the public art process are explored. The difficult economics of the creative life are laid bare.
With his background in commercial development, Tim’s insights on the changing landscape in Atlanta provide a perspective for artists on living the creative life in major cities.
Collectors and super collectors are compared. The sustainability of galleries and art fairs is debated. Joe laments the future.
