Ding-a-ling! ‘How to Make It in the Art World’

New York Magazine nails it this week with the New Art Rule Book.’  Besides the obvious “Survive” and “Know These 100 People,”  the magazine also throws a few surprises into this 18-rule goodie bag for emerging artists including, “Reject the Market. Embrace the Market,” “Get Born Into it,” “Make Art That’s Difficult to Collect,” and of course it would not be New York Magazine without rules #4 and #6 (“Be Young, Post-Black, and From Chicago” and “Outsource to China“.)

While some of this might be hyperbole, I still think it’s a must-read. I recommend the print version for better graphics, but for those who don’t have time: http://nymag.com/arts/art/rules/
