A Portuguese gallery can never be able to put a Portuguese artist in Gagosian gallery.
Portugal has zero power, how a gallery that is part of this Portuguese status may have some power?
I think there are no art collectors in Portugal. Joe Berardo is an investor; Francisco Capelo made him the collection in a time of "fat cows" when things were dirt cheap.
The art fairs replaced the museums, however they are fairs they aren’t exhibitions. The main art fairs today are Basel, Basel Miami and New York Freeze. In Portugal there are no art fairs.
Nowadays anyone that wants to do an exhibition in Portugal is a lost investment, I have no financial return.
