NEW YORK, Sept. 2017
Visual artists over 40 working in all styles have been forced to eat each other’s flesh to survive the current art market. Reports from several major curators have confirmed this fact. This after a number of gallery closings in NYC over the past year and many artists changing their art practices. "Artists who once made paintings have stopped and just do a lot of social media posts against Donald Trump now," says Bubba Richter, the love child of Gerhard Richter and Miley Cyrus.
Human flesh is a delicacy in many countries and may be a good protein source for artists working in performance, installation and other forms inside and outside the commercial gallery system.
Slow sales for artists not working in abstraction has also fed the need for human flesh as a dietary supplement. WM
