Art and Money coincides with a special issue of Artforum, devoted to the same topic, exploring contemporary art's production, presentation, and acquisition during a radical expansion of public interest and market forces; Is the current boom another chapter in an older, modernist history, or is it truly unprecedented? How did contemporary art, of seemingly endless supply, become so dear? How did Ai Weiwei become more valuable than Tiepolo? What role does narcissism and trophy-gathering play? Why has contemporary art reached so far beyond traditional borders and how does that affect the worlds artists? Who gets rich, who stays poor, and who decides?
