Are Galleries Dead?

I seem to be stuck on galleries at the moment—physical galleries and those online.  Perhaps it is applying to too many shows. But then I stumble across an April article written by New York Magazine art critic Jerry Saltz who says “galleries are dead.” He contends that everything is going online and that openings are simply social. 

 

I wonder if that is true. If you are interested, here’s link to the article: http://www.vulture.com/2013/03/saltz-on-the-death-of-art-gallery-shows.html?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+nymag%2Fvulture+%28Vulture+-+nymag.com%27s+Entertainment+and+Culture+Blog%29

  1. Every gallery has a person that sets up the show. He or she works with the artist to understand how each piece should be displayed, how it should be lit, how to provide information regarding the work and the artist. This person stands for the artist and their livelihood insuring a meaningful and respectful experience over what could be reduced to a meaningless transaction. No, galleries are not dead, nor will they be.
