Escandalario: los artistas y la distribución del arte

Notes

Escandalario was the failed dream of an art gallery. The author revives the name in a book that critically reviews the involvement of artists in México in 3 basic economic activities of the free-market system: production; distribution and consumption of art. Contains a very helpful bibliography on the subject.
