SWAG-Art

By ckaresenxe - Nov 09 2019
Read more
I usually learn something listening to your regular podcasts. But this first SWAG-Art was adolescent and just silly. I know the art world to be highly sophisticated and can mirror and be affected by the other “equity” markets. The guest should have been the author of Boom, Mad Monet and the Rise of Contemporary Art, Michael Shnayerson. Come on Felix, you can do better.

Awesome Podcast!!
